St Gertrude the Great Pewter Medal


Silver pewter medal of Saint Gertrude the Great, with the words "Prayer For Us" on the reverse side. The medal is made in Italy from nickle and lead free pewter, and is lightly oxidised to give the medal an aged look.

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.
