A St Therese medal necklace with a gorgeous vintage look. These tiny St Therese of Liseux Catholic medals were hand cast from a vintage antique medal in bronze.

The original medal was an antique from my private collection that I obtained from Brussels. It was recast for me, and a patina was applied to give the new medal a vintage look. Then I polished it to bring out all the lovely details.

This medal is only 3/4" tall.... petite and lovely. The matching chain is 18" long and is solid brass that is aged for a perfect match.

This medal also available in Solid Sterling Silver...

The front of the medal says St. Therese of Liseux. The back of the medal says,"Je veux passer mon ciel a faire du bien a sur la Terre". Which translate to "I will spend my heaven doing good on Earth." These are the words of a young Carmelite nun as she lay dieing of tuberculosis...they are most astonishing, because they proved to be so true. Below is her story....

Therese died at the age of 24 yrs of age on Sept 30, 1897, an unknown Carmelite nun behind closed doors in a quiet monastery. She had lived her life practicing her "Little Way" which consists in doing small things with great love for God. At her superiors request, she had written down her life's story. This autobiography, entitled, Story of a Soul, was published as an obituary after her death, and astonishingly became an instant success. Her fame spread rapidly. Her path to holiness was indeed unique as up until this time, people tended to identify sainthood with the kind of exceptional perfection that involved heroic enterprises, extraordinary graces, etc. Therese was canonized on May 17, 1925, just 28 years after her death. Then she was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1997 by Pope John Paul II The Title of Doctor is given to very few Saints, but indicates that St. Therese "little Way' is a primary reference point for understanding and practicing the gospel message today. She did indeed keep true to her dieing words. Through her 'Little Way' she has become an inspiration to holiness for many, a powerful intercessor and one of the most popular saints of modern times.
