 358 AD
IT SNOWED IN AUGUST
Saint Mary Major, Our Lady of the Snows.  A wonderful tradition here as Mary appeared to Pope Liberius (352-366) and told him she wanted a church built on Esquiline Hill. That she would leave a sign.  Why? Because it would embrace and honor her Eucharistic son, Jesus. The next morning the Holy Father rushed up the hill and there  –  in a perfect rectangle – snow had fallen.  This wonderful miracle happened on a very hot morning on the 5th of August, 358 AD.


ABOUT OUR METALS: All crucifixes, crosses, medals are handcast from antiques and vintage pieces in sterling silver and solid bronze then antiqued to restore original patina.
