St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers, and small images of him are often worn around the neck, on a bracelet, carried in a pocket, or placed in vehicles by Christians.
The Madonnina, commonly known as the Madonna of the Streets, was a painting created by Roberto Ferruzzi (1854-1934) that won the second Venice Biennale in 1897.
The models for this painting were Angelina Cian (age 11) and her younger brother. Although not originally painted as a religious picture, this painting became popularized as an image of the Virgin Mary holding her infant son, and has become the most renowned of Ferruzzi's works.
This is a small 7/8", pretty medal, which has been blessed by our beloved Pope Francis during the apostolic blessing of the crowd in Saint Peter Square; on request it can be blessed again after the sale.
Comes with a holy card of the blessing by Pope Francis!
