French Kande's Saint Anne de Beaupre Medallion features St. Anne, the mother of Mary, set in a lovely black diamond accented bezel and hung from French Kande's Tiger Eye Mix and a light brass Provence Chain. The 17" strand of Tiger Eye Mix features faceted Tiger Eye, Garnet and Pyriite. St. Anne is holding Mary as a little girl and teaching her "wisdom". St. Anne is the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Christ. She is the patroness of mothers, grandmothers and those who struggle to conceive.
This medal is recast from a vintage original from the Basilica of St. Anne de Beaupre in Quebec. The following is the story of the beginning of the miracles there courtesy of the Basilica.
Everything began in 1658 when Louis Guimont, suffering from excruciating back pain, came to help with the construction of the first chapel and was miraculously healed as a result. This would be the first of an endless series of healings. As early as 1665, an Ursuline nun, Blessed Marie de l'Incarnation, wrote the following words to her son:
"Seven leagues from here, there is a village called "The Little Cape", where there is a church dedicated to Saint Anne in which Our Lord is working great marvels in favour of the holy mother of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. There, the paralytics walk, the blind can see, and the sick are healed of every kind of illness."
- Marie de l'incarnation, 1665
