Winged Angel Heart Ornament
Ornament - Reproduction Small French Ex Voto from 1890
The Latin term ex voto, short for ex voto suscepto, “from the vow made” has been a Catholic symbolic offering placed in a home, church, or shrine as a thanksgiving for a miracle received.
MEANING. The premise of the Christian ex voto is the vow, in a moment of hardship, crisis, or ill health, to give a thanks to God. The ex voto, in turn, is the concrete testimonial of that vow’s fulfillment, an object that stands as the material representation of the miracle itself. Ex Votos are also offered in thanksgiving for unexpected miracles, in which case they function as public affirmations of God’s constant powerful presence in the lives of the faithful.
