Sacred Heart Medal in Sterling Silver - Medium Oval (#10675)

The Sacred Heart is a religious devotion to Jesus' physical heart.

This devotion is predominantly used in the Roman Catholic Church and represents divine love for humanity. It also stresses the central Christian concept of loving and adoring Jesus. The origin of this devotion in its modern form is derived from a French Catholic nun Marie Alacoque, who allegedly learned the devotion from Jesus in visions. Predecessors to the modern devotion existed to some extent in the Middle Ages in various mystical sects.[1]

The Sacred Heart is often depicted in Christian art as a flaming stylized heart, pierced and bleeding from a surrounding crown of thorns. Sometimes the image is superimposed over Jesus' body with his wounded hands pointing at the heart. The wounds and crown of thorns allude to the manner of Jesus' death, while the fire represents love.

The Sacred Heart medal is a beautiful medal, and is a perfect gift for a special Catholic occasion! Measures 3/4" x 1/2"

Includes a 20 in. Rhodium Chain and a Deluxe Gift Box
