Wearing a Patron Saint medal is a very common practice for a Catholic as it serves as a sacramental of great spiritual importance. At the Catholic Faith Store we have thousand of saint medals to choose from, even some of the less popular saints! A patron saint medal makes for the ideal baptism or confirmation gift and makes for a wonderful gift for yourself or the person you love. When we wear a patron saint medal we are asking for protection, we are reminded to act with mercy and to love the Lord our God.
History shows us that early Christians wore medals of faith around their necks but it was approximately 500 years ago that Pope Pius V sanctioned the practice of having medals blessed. Our blessed patron saint medals offer the devote Catholic a supernatural protection against evil. We believe in the Communion of Saints and that our saints can intercede to God on our behalf.
