Marco d'Aviano (November 17, 1631 August 13, 1699) was a Capuchin friar. His real name was Carlo Domenico Cristofori; his birthplace Aviano, a small community in the Republic of Venice (Italy). From an early age, he felt attracted to a life of devotion and martyrdom. Educated at the Jesuit College in Gorizia, at 16 he tried to reach the island of Crete, where the Venetians were at war with the Ottoman Turks, in order to preach the Gospel and convert the Muslims to Christianity. On his way, he sought asylum at a Capuchin convent in Capodistria, where he was welcomed by the Superior, who knew his family, and who, after providing him with food and rest, advised him to return home. Inspired by his encounter with the Capuchins, he felt that God was calling on him to enter their Order. In 1648, he began his novitiate. A year later, he professed his vows and took his father's name, Marco, becoming Fra' Marco d'Aviano. His ministry entered a new phase in 1664, when he received the licence to preach throughout the Republic of Venice and other Italian states, particularly during Advent and Lent. He was also given more responsibility when he was elected Superior of the convents of Belluno in 1672, and Oderzo in 1674. His life took an unexpected turn in 1676, when he gave his blessing to a nun, bedridden for some 13 years: she was miraculously healed. The news spread far and wide, and it was not long before the sick, and many others from all social strata, began to seek him out. Among those who sought his help was Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor, whose wife had been unable to conceive a male heir. From 1680 to the end of his life, Marco d'Aviano became a close confidant and adviser to him, providing the irresolute and often indecisive emperor with guidance and advice for all problems, political, economic, military or spiritual. His forceful, energetic and sometimes passionate and fiery personality proved a good complement for Leopold's Hamlet-like tendency to allow endless doubts and scruples to paralyse his capacity for action. As the danger of war with the Ottoman Turks grew near, Marco d'Aviano was appointed by Pope Innocent XI as his personal envoy to the Emperor. An impassioned preacher and a skillful mediator, Marco d'Aviano played a crucial role in resolving disputes, restoring unity, and energizing the armies of the Holy League, which included Austria, Poland, Venice, and the Papal States under the leadership of the Polish king Jan III Sobieski. In the decisive Battle of Vienna (1683), the Holy League succeeded in inflicting a defeat on the invading Ottoman Turks. This marked the end of the last Turkish attempt to expand their power in Europe, and the beginning of the long European counter-offensive that was to continue ultimately until the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire in 1918. This may therefore be considered one of the decisive battles of history. It also put an end to the period of Ottoman revival under the Koprulu Grand Vizirs and their protg and successor, Kara Mustapha, who was in command of the Ottoman army at Vienna. From 1683 to 1689 he participated in the military campaigns in the role of promoting good relations within the Imperial army and to help the soldiers spiritually. His assistance helped to bring about the liberation of Buda in 1686 and Belgrade in 1688. At the same time, he always maintained a strictly religious spirit, to which any needless violence and cruelty were repugnant. As a result, at the siege of Belgrade several hundred Muslim soldiers successfully appealed to him personally, in order to avoid being massacred upon capture. In the judgement of historians, Marco's influence over Leopold was exercised responsibly, in the sole interests of Christianity and of the House of Austria. In one of his private letters to the Emperor, Marco actually scolds him quite forcefully for granting a benefit to one of his brothers, reminding him that, by so doing, he was only providing ammunition for the enemies of their cause. Marco d' Aviano died of cancer on August 13, 1699 at Vienna, Austria. In 2003, he was beatified by Pope John Paul II.

Customers Reviews
"Ordered a St. Michael's medal for my grandson for his graduation from the New York City Police. Upon arrival I was extremely pleased with the workmanship and quality of the medal. Customer Service was extremely helpful when I called for a small error and worked with me for my complete satisfaction. Would highly recommend this company and will shop with them again."
-- Sandra

"One of the best websites I have been on shopping for religious medals. Great variety."
-- Patty

"I bought a medal for my husband for Christmas. I know that he will love it. There is no saint for his name so I got the one that is nearest to his name. He won't have to use his middle name like he always does. I like dealing with Pictures On Gold. This was my second time."
-- Joan Cestra

"I've purchased two Miraculous Medals from you at different times. Both times I've been highly satisfied. They came when expected and there were no hidden costs. Actually look so much better than pictures on site. No photo does jewelry any justice. The recent one I got was in sterling silver. I bought it for a friend for Mothers Day as she keeps admiring the one I always wear. Won't she be surprised. Thank you for your meticulous work in creating this fine jewelry."
-- Virginia

"I received my St. Raphael dog tags today and I could not be happier. The dog tags themselves were stunningly beautiful and exceeded my highest expectation. My special instructions concerning the engraving, though a little complicated, were followed to a "t". Your website was easy to navigate, and very helpful in giving me a good image of what the dog tags and engraving would look like. The shipping was lightning fast -- the dog tags were shipped the same day I ordered them and I received them a mere two days later. Everything about my experience with PICTURES ON GOLD was top notch and I can't thank you enough for your outstanding customer service, and a medal that quite simply took my breath away. Linda"
-- Linda

"I ordered the medal yesterday, and received it today. I'm utterly astonished It is beautifully engraved and just the right size. You people rock I will be a repeat customer, you can bet on it. Gift box is also very pretty. My daughter will love wearing her patron saint as she starts her career. Thank you so much."
-- Theresa

""I searched the internet for just the right pendant. I found one exactly like I wanted at PicturesOnGold. I recently purchased a St. Francis gold plated pendant, inscribed with Protect My Dogs. Service was excellent, and have gotten lots of compliments on my pendant. I'll definitely order from Pictures on Gold again. Daniel was especially helpful. Thanks for a great product." Judy"
-- Judy Rice

"The Items I bought are flawless. I bought the religious medals St. Jude and St.Anthony COLOR EXCLUSIVE. There was a mistake in this order. One chain was the wrong size. When I called the Gentleman on the phone was very pleasant and professional and corrected the problem. I "Would" order from Pictures on Gold again. I would encourage Catholic Churches to look into ordering their patron Saint Name sake. I am trying to get my Church to do this. If you do order anything from this site you wilo not be sorry. Thanks Bill B"
-- William
