Saint Pendant St Damien of Hawaii & Jesus Christ Reversible

This double-sided glass pendant features an icon of St Damien of Hawaii on one side and the Risen Christ on the reverse. This piece has a dangling cross as well. One pendant you can wear 2 ways.

I have taken a more rustic approach with the silvery lead-free solder used to seal it, thus making it appear ages old. It is roughly 1½" square and about 3" long with cross. It is not waterproof, please do not wear while bathing or swimming. It will come with a simple handmade 16-19" necklace. Custom beaded necklaces are available for $10, please contact me if interested.

Son of a small farmer. Studied at the college at Braine-le-Comte, Belgium. Joined the Picpus Fathers on 7 October 1860, taking the name Damien. Seminarian in Paris, France. Volunteered for missionary work while still in seminary, and was sent to Hawaii. Ordained in Honolulu on 24 May 1864. Missionary on islands where his single parish was the size of all of his native Belgium. Resident priest in the leper colony on Molokai where for years he worked alone to minister to the patients’ spiritual and medical needs. His work turned a wretched dump for the unwanted into a real community with the best treatment of the day, and patients who lived strong spiritual lives. He contracted leprosy in 1885, and though severely crippled by the disease, Father Damien worked until the end.
