SOUL of MARY MEDAL (Our Lady of the Dove) – SPAIN, 18th-19thc ( 1.75 in. ) – MMD.01

  • Description


SOUL of MARY MEDAL: (‘Alma de Maria’) also known as ‘Our Lady of the Dove’ – A very popular devotion in Spanish Colonial times. This beautiful devotion reflects the ‘Annunciation’. In the icon image of this devotion, Mary is clutching a white dove (symbol of ‘Espiritu Santo’ the Holy Spirit) next to her heart. A rosary hangs around her neck (like a precurser of the life of her son to be) as she looks upwards to heaven. In the medal she is surrounded by 3 angels along with a ribbon-like frame. Dated 18th-19th century. A very old devotion that deserves to be restored as is even more powerful today. (Reverse: N.S.S. CD ( or E) LA PALOMA).

Also available as a center, SEE (RC.66):

HISTORY OF ‘SOUL OF MARY’: We see her embracing the dove, the Holy Spirit next to her heart. One has to wonder if 2 Chronicles 2:5 went through her mind and heart, “Yet who is really able to build him a house, since the heavens and even the highest heavens cannot contain him? And who am I that I should build him a house, unless it be to offer incense in his presence?” We are reminded, in such a precious way of Mary’s participation in our redemption.
