Handmade St. Fiacre Statue
Item #: 2007873
Patron of Gardeners
Fiacre was born in County Kilkenny, Ireland, in the seventh century. After being ordained a priest, he established a hermitage in Ireland. Word of his holiness spread, and disciples came to him. He fled to France, looking for greater solitude. There, the bishop of Meaux offered him use of all the land he could till in one day. Fiacre miraculously used his staff to turn over acres of land, which the bishop granted to him. He built a hermitage with a substantial garden. He lived a life of great mortification and hard manual labor, tending the garden, growing fruits, vegetables, and medicinal herbs. From his garden he fed pilgrims and the poor.
Handmade and painted by an American artist in Mississippi and made to hang only. Can be placed indoors or outdoors. Comes gift boxed with a history card inside.
9 x 3 x 1 inches
