Patron saints are Christian role models who led lives of heroic virtue. Parents are encouraged to give their children strong names and persons to emulate throughout their lives, because . . . "A good name is more desirable than great riches" (Proverbs 22:1).
Many saints are named the patrons of certain causes. For example, St. Joseph is the patron of workers, and St. Maria Goretti is the patron saint of purity. Wearing saint jewelry is a popular tradition among Catholic faithful. Saint medals are the most common kind of saint jewelry, and they are a great way to remind ourselves of our favorite saint. Patron saint medals make wonderful gift ideas that encourage us to a life of holiness like the saints. Many medals of patron saints are suitable for engraving and make great gifts for Baptism, Confirmation, First Holy Communion, Service men and women, or any other occasion.
