St. Peregrine, Patron of Cancer Patients and Those Cured of Cancer: Handmade Medal
(as of Aug 08, 2023 01:18:01 UTC – Details)
I design and carve the original of each medal, and then cast them by hand in lead-free pewter. Can be pendants or used on a key chain. (The medal comes with a split ring, so it can be used on a key chain.) Each comes in a felt pouch with a history card stating the following: “St. Peregrine (1260-1345) was born wealthy, lived a dissolute early life. During a dispute, he struck St. Philip Benizi on the face. St. Philip turned the other cheek, and Peregrine converted. Joined the Servite order and for thirty years, as penance, lived and worked as much as possible in silence and solitude. Later in life, he developed skin cancer on his foot, was scheduled for surgery. He spent the night before the operation in prayer; had a vision of Christ healing him with a touch to his foot. Next morning, Peregrine was healed. Peregrine was canonized in 1726. This pewter medal of Peregrine was handmade by Hank Schlau.” Dimensions: 1.5 inches across. Please note that this is a large medal.
