Our Lady of Guadalupe Cameo Religious Medal Bracelet


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.


(Pope John Paul II.)

This is another special bracelet I created honoring Our humble and beautiful Lady of Guadalupe. I used a beautiful vintage cameo of Our Lady of Guadalupe and also added a smaller vintage cameo of Our Lady of Sorrows and a St. Michael 3rd class relic medal.

I used several other Catholic medals including Our Lady of Medjugorje, St. Rocco, St. Padre Pio, St. Lucy, Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos, St. Charbel, Holy Family and others. Beads are glass pearls and gemstones including coral and yellow Jade.

My 2 yr. old granddaughter has a very special connection with Our Lady of Guadalupe. She can stand in front of a large statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe and carry a conversation with Her and she kisses Her and St. Juan Diego and the other day, she surprised me because for the first time, she saw a smaller statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe I have on top of a dresser and she gasped and said "The Boss" and wanted to hold Her. I asked her again what she had said? She repeated "The Boss" I was just amazed how much she loves Our Lady of Guadalupe and I know referring to Her as "The Boss" it is in the most respectful way a 2yr old toddler can express about Our Lady. She is beautiful
