 Introducing our Newest Saint Medal!

It gives us joy and a few chuckles to welcome to the squad our newest medal, Saint Kevin of Glendalough. Saint Kevin was born in the Province of Leinster, Ireland. Legend has it that when he was born, an Angel appeared, and his mother endured no labor pains, and the falling snow melted around their house.

The Angel instructed his parents to name him Kevin (Coemgen in the native tongue), marking the very first time anyone bore the name Kevin. Kevin wasn't very fond of people but he loved animals dearly and legend has it he performed a number of miracles, creating a legacy still popular in Irish Folklore.

When Kevin was 7 his parents sent him to a Monastery, where on the first day of Lent he went outside and knelt, holding his hand outstretched to the Lord when a Blackbird landed in his hand, constructed a nest, and laid eggs. He remained perfectly still, surviving on berries and nuts dropped into his mouth from the Blackbird, until all the eggs hatched. The final baby bird was born on the last day of Lent and flew safely out of Kevin's hand.

Never fond of humans, Kevin made his home as a hermit in a small cave in Glendalough. He spent 7 years in solemn prayer and reflection, where an otter would bring him Salmon, to feed the Monks. But one Monk decided he wanted to take the otter and make gloves! Kevin then told the Otter to get out of Glendalough and never return. The cave he lived in exists to this day, and is now known as "Saint Kevin's Bed."

A pagan dairy farmer named Dima would let his cows out to pasture every day, when he began noticing one cow in particular would wander further than the others. Dima never knew where the cow went, but grew curious when it began producing almost 50 times the milk as the others. Eventually Dima followed the cow and realized it would visit Kevin in his cave everyday and lick his feet and clothes while he prayed. In awe, Dima begged Kevin to come out of isolation to show him and his family the way of Christ. Kevin then decided he would build a monastery to spread the good word, but King O'Tool of Glendalough, a pagan, would not allow it.

The King had a pet goose who was old and weak, and unable to fly. Kevin visited the goose and made the King a proposition, he requested the King grant Kevin any land the goose flew over to build his monastery. The King agreed knowing the goose was old and feeble and could not fly, but when Kevin touched the goose it grew young again, and flew across the entire valley of Glendalough. Kevin then, with the help of local farmers, built the monastery, which soon became populated with Monks who spread the word of the Lord.

Upon hearing these stories our assistant Farrah, cleverly dubbed St. Kevin "The Animal Whisperer." We are proud to have him in stock for all you Animal lovers, people who prefer isolation, and people who love all things Irish or Blackbirds. If any of you want the St. Kevin medal the only way to receive it is by ordering Our Lady of the Highway. Unfortunately he is not on our website yet, so please order Our Lady of the Highway and we will know to send Her along with St. Kevin. (Of course you will get both for the price of one).

Thanks for reading to the bottom line, we will be in touch!
