SAINT CATHERINE - MEDAL
Patronage: patron saint of nurses, Italy, and copatron of Europe.
Feast: 29 April.
St Catherine medal depicts her with her traditional attributes — a book and a lily, symbolizing wisdom and purity. For her impressive doctrinal writings, St. Catherine of Siena became one of only a few women who hold the title of doctor of the church. She was a strong advocate of the papacy during the Florentine revolts, and she even helped Pope Urban VI reorganize the church.
At your request, we will bring the medal to receive the Blessing from Pope Francis. Request it in the shopping cart.
