St Gertrude the Great Pewter Medal
Gertrude the Great (or Saint Gertrude of Helfta ) 1256 – 1302 , was a German Benedictine nun and Abbess, and was a mystic and theologian. One of the most esteemed woman saints of the Christian West, she was a notable early devotee of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The life of this saint was one of great
mental activity - the mystic life of the cloister, a life hidden with Christ in God. She was characterized by great devotion to the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord in His Passion and in the Blessed Eucharist, and by a tender love for the Blessed Virgin. Saint Gertrude is the patron saint of travellers and of the West Indies and Naples.
