The Holy Face medal aluminum 3/4 inch

Sister Pierina, a holy nun who died in 1945, in many visions was urged by the Blessed Mother and Jesus Himself to spread the devotion to the Holy Face, in reparation for the many insults Jesus suffered in His Passion, such as to be slapped, spit upon and kissed by Judas, as well as now being dishonored in many ways in the Blessed Sacrament by neglect, sacrileges and profanations. She was given a medal which on one side bore a replica of the Holy Shroud and the inscription: "Illumina, Domine, vultum tuum super nos". (Ps. 66-1 "May, O Lord, the light of Thy countenance shine upon us". On the reverse side was a radiant host with the words: "Mane nobiscum, Domine". - "Stay with us, 0 Lord".

In 1940, when the Second World War had the world in a turmoil, Italy saw a wide distribution of this Holy Face medal.  Relatives and friends saw that their soldiers, sailors, and aviators were provided with the replica of the Holy Face since the medal was already famous for its miracles and countless spiritual and temporal favors.

The very first medal of the Holy Face was offered to our glorious Pontiff, Pope Pius XII; then the whole wide world got acquainted with this special object of favors and devotion.  It is to be found on land and sea. Never has it been heard that a prisoner of war wearing this badge of salvation has been executed.
