Sacred Heart Medals

The newest additions to my Sacred Heart medals collection. Both are absolutely stunning French antiques.

The larger one is a Sacred Immaculate Heart of Mary. Around the edge are French words, "Mere De Misericorde Prier Pour Nous," which translates to, "Mother of Mercy Pray For Us."

The smaller one is a French flaming heart ex voto. I believe this piece represented hope, faith and charity at one time, but the anchor is missing.
