Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, also called St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, is usually depicted wearing the Carmelite habit, holding the Cross and a bouquet of roses. On the centenary of her death, Pope John Paul II named a “Doctor of the Church”, which made her the third female saint to receive such title. Invoke her to ward off infectious diseases. The handcrafted and hand-painted details of this medal almost bring this Saint to life, as they highlight the magnificence of such an important figure in the history of Christianity.
At your request, we will bring the Catholic medal to receive the Blessing from Pope Francis. Request it in the shopping cart.
