We love this unique Confirmation medal featuring the saints Peter and Paul being blessed by the Holy Spirit in the form of a radiant dove. Around the edge is written in Latin and reads "Super Nos Spiritus De Excelsio" which means "The Spirit is Poured on Us from on High". Isa 32 15 [Isaiah 32:15] is inscribed below the saints, noting the location of the Bible verse.
The reverse shows Pope Pius IX who reigned from 1846 to 1878. The inscription reads "Pius IX Pontifex Max. Ano. VIII" (Pius IX Supreme Pontiff Year 8). The medal was probably struck during the eighth year of his papacy.
Beautifully antiqued to represent the original medal.
