Front side - Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception
The face of the medal bears the image of Our Lady of the Immaculate ConceptionShe stands on the world, crushing the head of the serpent. This refers to the passage in Genesis where God said to the serpent, "I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; They will strike at your head, while you strike at their heel" (3:15). Mary is seen as a strong force against the powers of evil on account of her "yes" when asked to bear the Son of God.
