I received a medallion that has a picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary and child Jesus with some Latin around it. It says, "Servus Mariae Nunquam Peribit." What does this mean?

Thanks.

I think its something like
"working mother live forever?"

It doesn't seem to make a great deal of sense.
I got that from a german site and then used google to translate.
Its something about working and living for ever...

Servus = servant/slave, not son. Son is "filius."

There's an automatic Latin-German translator online? Wow. I'm impressed that, despite the first two words being screwed up, the Latin-German-English translation performed a fairly nonliteral but accurate translation of "non peribit" to "live forever."
