This well-loved vintage medal has all of the patina of history and lovely tarnish we all love in old medals. Oxidized Silver Metal. The Holy Family is usually depicted, like this, Saint Joseph & The Blessed Virgin Mary looking upon the Christ Child, in loving adoration. This is a particularly rare example done in a stylistic Mid Century artistic form where the image is incomplete, yet the bodily forms of Joseph & Mary are "assumed" and still understood. The reverse reads: "Jesus Mary & Joseph 7 Years Indulgence".

In Catholic theology, an indulgence is the full or partial remission of temporal punishment due for sins which have already been forgiven. The indulgence is granted by the Catholic Church after the sinner has confessed and received absolution. An indulgence is thus not forgiveness of sin nor release from the eternal punishment associated with hell in Christian beliefs. The belief is that indulgences draw on the Treasury of Merit accumulated by Christ's superabundantly meritorious sacrifice on the cross and the virtues and penances of the saints. They are granted for specific good works and prayers.

Indulgences replaced the severe penances of the early Church. More exactly, they replaced the shortening of those penances that was allowed at the intercession of those imprisoned and those awaiting martyrdom for the faith.

Size: 1 3/8" long including bail x 7/8" wide
