This Our Lady of La Vang medal is a great gift for Vietnamese Catholics!
Our Lady of La Vang is the central and national shrine of Vietnam, approximately 60 kilometers from the former capitol Hue. During the great persecution (1798-1801) many Christians took refuge in the jungle situated in proximity of Quang Tri, a village in central Vietnam, where they experienced hunger and sickness, and prepared themselves for martyrdom. One day, as the community was assembled in prayer, the figure of a lady surrounded by many lights, appeared to them. She presented herself as the Mother of God, encouraged and consoled them, and gave them a special sign of her loving care.
