Antique Gold St Charbel Makhlouf Medal Pendant Necklace, Replica of Rare Saint Sharbel Charm, Lebanese Saint, Miraculous Healing Intercessor

Antique Gold St Charbel Makhlouf Medal Pendant Necklace, Replica of Rare Saint Sharbel Charm, Lebanese Saint, Miraculous Healing Intercessor
Only 5 available
Medal Only or Medal on Necklace
Wonderful antique replica of a very rare small medal of Blessed Charbel Makhlouf from Lebanon. This unique pendant dangles on a 2.5x6 mm curb chain with a lobster clasp closure. I am blessed to have this original in my collection and be able to share it with you at a reasonable price. The antiquing finishing process brings out the beautiful details so this is much nicer than the original.

This curb chain is beautiful with the medal, but is more expensive than many Holy Moments chains. If you would prefer a lower cost option, please message me.

The wording is difficult to read (even on the original medal). This is a small and charming piece of meaningful art. The magnification in photos makes the wording look more unclear, but in person, this is gorgeous.

The front side has Beatus (Blessed) Charbel Makhlouf. The bottom of the front side is in Arabic. On the backside, is a Cedar Tree of Lebanon (or Lebanese Cedar) which is very significant and native to Lebanon. The Latin text above the tree is "justus vitalma florebit sicutcedrrus libani mvlii plicabivi" meaning "the righteous will flourish like the cedar of Lebanon". Saint Charbel (also Sharbel) is considered the true "cedar of Lebanon" standing in eternal prayer on the top of a mountain. He was beatified in 1965 and canonized in 1977.

St Charbel was a Lebanese Maronite Monk considered the Wonder Worker of Lebanon. He has a fascinating story such as intense light emanating from his body. St. Charbel has many stories as a powerful intercessor through whom God desires to reveal his healing touch.

This fine replica piece is cast in solid gold bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A. The oxidation finishing process prevents tarnishing from contact with air. Excessive skin oils may darken the backside of the medal. It is also best to not wear gold bronze in water. A polishing cloth is included so the medal can be polished to the original appearance. You would not damage the medal by contact with water since it is solid gold bronze (not a plating), but it may darken and need additional polishing.

This pendant is 5/8 inch diameter.
Prayer to Saint Charbel Makhlouf

Lord, infinitely Holy and Glorified in Your Saints,
You have inspired Charbel, the saint monk,
to lead the perfect life of a hermit.
We thank You for granting him the blessing
and the strength to detach himself from the world
so that the heroism of the monastic virtues of poverty,
obedience, and chastity, could triumph in his hermitage.

We beseech You to grant us the grace of loving and serving You,
following his example.
Almighty God, Who has manifested
the power of St. Charbel's intercession
through his countless miracles and favours,
grant us... (state your intention here) through his intercession.


Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be to the Father.
