Four Way and Five Way Medals for Men, Women, and Children
Is a Four Way medal the same as a Five Way medal? Whether you call it Four Way or Five Way depends on how you look at it! Both are composed of four medals: the Scapular medal (The Sacred Heart with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on the back); St. Christopher; the Miraculous medal (with the cross, the M, the hearts, and the 12 stars on the back); and St. Joseph. To get a count of five, look for a dove or a sacred heart in the center. The back often bears the inscription: I am a Catholic, please call a priest.
