St. Bernard Medal
"Patron Saint of skiers and alpinists"


( length 7/8" heigth 1 1/4" )

Who is Saint Bernard?
Along the Penine alps between Switzerland and Italy is a narrow defile called the Great St. Bernard Pass.
Here at 8,114 feet elevation is located a hospice founded in the 11th century by Bernard of Menthon
(1020 - 1081).
History records how Bernard saved the lives of scores of travellers who had fallen victim of avalanche, banditti and other mountain hazards.
Bernard was canonized in 1124 and further honored in the late 1800s when European dog breeders renamed the Alpine Mastif, the Saint Bernard.
Today St. Bernard, the man, is know as the Patron Saint of Skiers and Alpinists.

(This story card and a 30" black linen cord included with purchase.)

backside inscription: "ST BERNARD PATRON SAINT OF SKIERS AND ALPINISTS PROTECT US"
This is a very beautiful and popular medal and makes a much cherished gift or keepsake...

Madonna del Ghisallo Medal
"Patroness Saint of cyclists"

(medal is 1 1/8" in diameter)

Who is Madonna del Ghisallo?

The Blessed Virgin Mary, as Madonna Del Ghisallo first became known by a medieval nobleman named Count Ghisallo who lived in Magreglio Italy.
One day, Count Ghisallo realized he was being followed by a gang of rogues who were intent on robbing him.  Spotting an image of the Virgin Mary under a tree
in a roadside shrine at the top of a hill, he broke away from his attackers and ran to it. There he took refuge, prayed for Our Lady‘s protection – and was miraculously saved.

As the story spread the rescuing apparition became known as the “Madonna del Ghisallo.”  Travelers and cyclists began to stop
(where the Madonna first appeared to Count Ghisallo) to rest and pray at the hilltop chapel, which was built in 1623.  

Over time, Our Lady became duly revered by cyclists who would make pilgrimages to her Chapel. The cyclists began leaving their racing jerseys, pennants from their riding clubs,
bicycles, and other memorabilia related to cycling. The cyclists also brought photographs of their friends and family members who had been injured or died while on their bicycles.

After World War II, Father Ermelindo Vigano, local pastor at the chapel shrine, proposed Madonna del Ghisallo be made the Patroness Saint of Cyclists, which was confirmed by Pope Pius XII in 1943.  The devotion to Our Lady never waned and soon there were so many pieces of biking artifacts being left in her honor, it became necessary to create the Museo del Ciclismo next to the chapel.

This hilltop site has since become equal part religious shrine and cycling museum, with artifacts and historical photos from the sport.
There is an eternal flame that burns bright in remembrance of all those who have been injured or killed while cycling as well as for those who love the sport or simply enjoy bike riding! 

The chapel is now a well-known Italian landmark, and the mountain road in which it guards is part of the Giro di Lombardia bicycle race.
The Feast of All Souls Day, on November 2, is also the Feast Day of Our Lady of Ghisallo.
Many make pilgrimages to the Ghisallo Chapel / Museum on that day to honor the Madonna and the sport of cycling. 

LA MADONNA TE PROTEGGA is inscribed on the medal’s front side and translates to mean, Madonna (Mary mother of Jesus) protect us. 
The backside depicts the tree where the Madonna appeared, the chapel and the cycling museum. 
Inscribed are the words RICORDO SANTUARIO del GHISALLO, which mean: In remembrance of the sanctuary given to Count del Ghisallo.

St. Michael the Archangel Medal
"Patron Saint of soldiers, police and doctors"

(diameter 3/4")

Who is Michael the Archangel?

Saint Michael the Archangel isn't a saint, but rather he is an angel, and the leader of all angels and of the army of God.  
The title "Archangel" means, that he is above all the others in rank.

St. Michael has four main responsibilities: The first is to combat Satan.
The second is to escort the faithful to heaven at their hour of death.
The third is to be a champion of all Christians, and the Church itself.
And the fourth is to call men from life on Earth to their heavenly judgment.

Very little is known about St Michael other than what is recorded in scriptures.
In Daniel, St. Michael is mentioned as one who helped Daniel, and is mentioned with regard to the
end times of the world when he will stand for the "children of thy people."

In the Epistle of St. Jude, St. Michael is said to guard the tombs of Moses and Eve and has contended with Satan over the body of Moses.

In Revelation, St. Michael and his angels, do battle with the dragon.

Today, St. Michel is invoked for protection, especially from lethal enemies.
He is also known as the patron of soldiers, police and doctors.

Ullr Pendant

Who is Ullr?
As far back as 400 AD Ullr, was know in Scandinavia as the protective god of skiers.
He was also recognized as the god of archers and hunting.

Much of the historical knowledge of Ullr comes from the Eddas (poems and tales of Norse mythology),
where Ullr and his wife Skade were considered the god and goddess of skiing. By the time these stories were written down in the 13th century,
Ullr had virtually disappeared from the pantheon of gods, and he almost vanished into the snows forever. But skiing and it’s ancient associations
were brought out during the nineteenth century to provide a foundation for the new Norwegian nationalism,
which would culminate in the political separation and independence from Sweden in 1905.
