What is a Four-Way Medal?

It’s a combination of four devotions in one!

The Four-Way Medal is a way to wear four popular devotional medals without getting yourself into a royal tangle!

The medal is shaped in the form of a cross, with a medal making up each of its four extremities.

  1. At the top is the Scapular Medal (the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the front and Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the back). This can be worn in lieu of a cloth Brown Scapular or even multiple scapulars, provided it is blessed with the blessing proper to each.
  2. On the right is St. Joseph, our most powerful advocate in Heaven after Our Lord and Our Lady.
  3. On the left is St. Christopher, beloved as the patron saint of travelers.
  4. Comprising the foot of the cross is the Miraculous Medal, with the corresponding design on the reverse.

A dove representing the Holy Spirit (or another devotional image such as a chalice) is often depicted in the center. On the back, you’ll frequently find the words: “I am a Catholic. Please call a priest.” In a life-threatening emergency, this alerts first responders to call a priest so you can receive the Last Rites.

The Four-Way Medal is a great way to represent and foster your devotion to Our Lord, Our Lady, and the saints. The Catholic Company offers a variety of these medals, including this classic sterling silver medal on a sturdy stainless steel curb chain. Order yours today!
