St. Peregrine, Patron Saint of Cancer Patients, Charm Bracelet


ST. PEREGRINE

He received a vision of Our Lady who told him to go to Siena, Italy, and there to join the Servites. After training and ordination, they assigned him to his home town. He lived and worked, as much as possible, in complete silence, in solitude, and without sitting down for 30 years in an attempt to do penance for his early life. When he did speak, he was known as a fervent preacher, excellent orator, and gentle confessor. Founded a Servite house at Forli.

A victim of a spreading cancer in his foot, Peregrine was scheduled for an amputation. The night before the operation, he spent in prayer; that night received a vision of Christ who healed him with a touch. The next morning, Peregrine found his cancer completely healed.

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.
(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty," "The Wonder-Worker," because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

On this bracelet I wanted to convey a message that no matter what you may be going through and God is always with you and when you sit down to enjoy that cup of coffee or tea invite Him like a good friend in time of needing comfort. That is why I added coffee and tea charms.

Includes a St. Peregrine 3rd class relic medal of St. Peregrine. Other Catholic medals include: St. Therese, St. Joseph, St. Dymphna, Mother Theresa, St. Frances "Mother" Cabrini, St. Anthony, St. John of God, St. Cosmas and St. Damian, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, St. Bernadette.

I included a stunning glass lampwork heart with gold shimmer on center and surrounded with more lampwork beads and pearls. I also added some feminine charms.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Charm Bracelet

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour

(Or OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP.)

It represents the Mother of God holding the Divine Child while the Archangels Michael and Gabriel present before Him the instruments of His Passion. Over the figures in the picture are some Greek letters which form the abbreviated words Mother of God, Jesus Christ, Archangel Michael, and Archangel Gabriel respectively. It was brought to Rome towards the end of the fifteenth century by a pious merchant, who, dying there, ordered by his will that the picture should be exposed in a church for public veneration. It was exposed in the church of San Matteo, Via Merulana, between St. Mary Major and St. John Lateran. Crowds flocked to this church, and for nearly three hundred years many graces were obtained through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin. The picture was then popularly called the Madonna di San Matteo. The church was served for a time by the Hermits of St. Augustine, who had sheltered their Irish brethren in their distress. These Augustinians were still in charge when the French invaded Rome (1812) and destroyed the church. The picture disappeared; it remained hidden and neglected for over forty years, but a series of providential circumstances between 1863 and 1865 led to its discovery in an oratory of the Augustinian Fathers at Santa Maria in Posterula. *Catholic Encyclopedia

On this bracelet I created in honor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, I added a beautiful and vivid image medal in the center surrounded by other Catholic medals, including Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, St. Therese, Infant of Prague, St. Michael, Virgin Mary, Mystical Rose and others.
As gemstones surrounding the medals I added natural jade.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Turquoise and Coral Bracelet


PATRONESS OF THE UNBORN
THE BLACK BELT
She was with child because she wore the Aztec Maternity Belt.

In 1531 a "Lady from Heaven" appeared to a poor Indian at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of Mexico City; she identified herself as the Mother of the True God, instructed him to have the bishop build a temple on the site and left an image of herself imprinted miraculously on his tilma, a poor quality cactus-cloth, which should have deteriorated in 20 years but shows no sign of decay 474 years later and still defies all scientific explanations of its origin.

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

O Virgin of Guadalupe,
Mother of the Americas,
grant to our homes the grace of loving
and respecting life in its beginnings,
with the same love with which
you conceived in your womb
the life of the Son of God.
Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of Fair Love,
protect our families so that
they may always be united
and bless the upbringing of our children.

Our hope, look upon us with pity,
teach is to go continually to Jesus,
and if we fall
help us to rise again and return to Him
through the confession of our faults
and our sins in the Sacrament of penance,
which gives peace to the soul.

We beg you to grant us a great love
of all the holy Sacraments,
which are, as it were,
the signs that your Son left us on earth.
Thus, Most Holy Mother,
with the peace of God in our consciences,
with our hearts free from evil and hatred,
we will be able to bring to all others
true joy and peace,
which come to us from your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Amen.

(Pope John Paul II.)

Rose: The rose is regarded as the "queen of flowers", and often symbolizes Mary, the Queen of Heaven. Also an almost universal symbol of perfect love, its color, perfection of form, and fragrance, as well as its thorns signifies Mary's role in salvation history as the Mother of God the Savior who was crowned with thorns and shed His blood on the Cross for love of mankind. The rose, arising from a thorny bush, also signifies Mary, the Mystical Rose
I added two beautiful coral carved roses to the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I used turquoise and brass as well. Other Catholic medals includes: Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, Sacred Heart, a beautiful vintage medal of St. Martin de Porres, Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Fatima.

"Our Lady's Tears" One Decade Rosary Charm Bracelet


Next to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus there is nothing more touching and effective than the tears of our Heavenly Mother! How many tears she shed on the Way of the Cross and when She stood beneath the Cross! She shed bitter tears in reparation for the many insults Her Divine Son then and which He would receive in the future. She wept bitter tears for the many souls who would be lost forever. In recent centuries, too, She wept tears of sorrow.

THIS STUNNING BRACELET WAS INSPIRED ON OUR LADY'S TEARS ROSARY AND AS A REMINDER OF THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE JESUS CHRIST MADE FOR OUR REDEMPTION

I added clear teardrop-shape glass beads to represent Our Lady's tears. I used a well detailed 3D resin cameo of Our Lady of Sorrows. I also used vintage and new medals.
