“It would be easier for the world to exist without the sun than without the Holy Mass."
- St Padre Pio
I have a memory of an old, family medal, upon which was a chalice. How I loved that medal and all it symbolized! So here is a modern version, youthful and joyful. A wreath of gold and silver surround a tiny chalice and a representation of the host.
When we encounter the mystery of the Eucharist, we understand just how much joy it brings. When I created this medal I held in my mind children receiving their First Holy Communion, so that they, like me, could have a vivid reminder of this Sacrament.
This pendant is entirely hand-made. The medal is 1.1 inch in diameter. Gold leaf in transparent resin, assembled on gold-plated silver rings.
