  • The Bella Grace Catholic Four and Five Way Medal Collection includes a wide variety of Sterling Silver and Gold medals. The four way medal is a combination of four other medals that are important to Catholicism. Looking at the cruciform, you can see the Sacred Heart medal, St. Joseph Medal, St. Christopher Medal, and the Miraculous medal all represented. Sometimes an additional image is placed in the center of the medal such as a dove, this medal is often referred to as a five way medal. The images explained stories of faith to the masses before most people were literate. Each of these images have their own meaning: Sacred Heart of Jesus - At the top of the cruciform is the Sacred Heart of Jesus, an image where Jesus points to His exposed heart, topped with a crown of thorns. The sacred heart represents sacrificial love and mercy that Christ has for humanity. St. Joseph - On the left side of the cruciform you will find St. Joseph holding a lily and baby Jesus. As Jesus' foster father, the image of St. Joseph represents guardianship and protection. The lily in his hand symbolizes righteousness and purity. St. Christopher -The right side of the cruciform depicts St. Christopher, with baby Jesus strapped to his back, navigating across a stream of rushing water. There are actually three meanings to this image: Christians must always carry the teachings of Jesus with them, they should always offer help to others in need, and they may ask St. Christopher to pray for them when embarking on a long journey. Miraculous Medal - The Miraculous medal can be found at the bottom of the cruciform, and it represents the earliest biblical prophecy of the Jewish messiah. In the image, the Virgin Mary stands atop the world, crushing a snake underfoot. There are also several meanings to this image: Mary represents the origin of Jesus, the globe beneath her feet symbolizes Jesus' kingship over the world, and the crushed snake represents Jesus' ultimate triumph over evil.
