Long known as one of the most famous Archangels, Saint Michael is often pictured as victorious over the devil, as he is in this medal. This image has given rise to the belief of his ability to stamp out evil.
Making this medal extra special is, however, that it glows in the dark. So at the darkest moments, you can look to St Michael for succor.
St Michael's patronage is very wide ranging: from artists to soldiers to paramedics; numerous countries and cities; protection from temptation and dangers at sea.
It measures 1-1/16 inch high including the loop by 11/16 inch wide. On the reverse it reads, Pray For Us.
