This St Michael Medal is a reduced version of the powerful St. Michael Peace Through Strength Challenge Coin. On the front of the coin, the image of Our Lady comes from a famous sculpture entitled “Regina Pacis”(Queen of Peace) found at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. The sculpture was commissioned in 1918 by Pope Benedict XV during WWI. That means this is the 100th anniversary of this beautiful sculpture. The titles for Mary on the Challenge Coin are both Regina Pacis (Queen of Peace) and Virgo Potens (Virgin Most Powerful).
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of St. Michael the Archangel. The image comes from a very famous 6th-century painting of St. Michael, which hangs in Santa Maria della Concezione in Rome. The inscription, “Defénde nos in proélio,” which is Latin for “Defend us in battle,” comes from the St. Michael Prayer which is prayed after all Low Masses in the Extraordinary Form.
Fr. Chad Ripperger has asked all of us to call out to Mary under this title of Virgo Potens, as we face this fierce spiritual battle in our times. Together, the two titles for Mary point to “Peace Through Strength” which is inscribed in Latin on the Challenge Coin: “Per Virtutem Pax” (Peace Through Strength).
