Day 24: Medallions

The theme for today was tough, simply because there’s no thanksgiving culture in Singapore. Hence, I’ve decided to photograph these two medallions that I always have in my wallets instead. The left medallion is of Immaculate Conception. It was conceived through the apparitions of Virgin Mary to Saint Catherine Labouré in Paris, France. I didn’t realise of its origin until near the end of my Paris stay in the first half of this year. For the right medallion though, I’m not really sure of its origin. It has Infant Jesus of Prague being in the centre of the cross.

These two medallions were given to me by my Mother. She told me that these two medallions would protect me wherever I go. Frankly speaking, I’m not a staunch Catholic. Nevertheless, these medallions serve as reminder of my belief that there’ll always be a more powerful force that will guide and keep me safe wherever I am.
