A Doctor of the Church, Saint Teresa of Avila is one of only 4 women to be decreed the honor. More concrete evidence of the handicap women have had in the Catholic Church! Fortunately, Pope Francis is also following a forward thinking path about expanding women's roles in the church, listening, and is also, working diligently to “Build a Bigger Tent,” and become radically inclusive, and not exclusive.

Many wear our Sacred Heart of Jesus as fashionary. You’ll see it in many artistic renditions, paintings, ceramics, stones and gems. Is it Sacrilegious to wear the Sacred Heart of Jesus as a “fashion statement?” We make no judgment. Its beauty, religious or otherwise, speaks for itself.

Today we are celebrating the Patron of Grillers and Barbecues, Saint Lawrence. He was a man of great fortitude and lived in the 3rd Century when Christianity was outlawed. All of the Papal leaders had been executed and it was Lawrence who stood alone as the keeper of the faith.

Today, we are celebrating saint Dorothy of Caesarea, patron of gardeners, flowers, newlyweds, and midwives. Officially known as the patron of midwives. I guess patron of doulas is a fair description, as well. Plus, Saint Dorothy is the perfect saint for springtime since she is the patron of florists and gardeners and her story fits right into the theme of blooms and blooming.

Saint Expedite, Patron of Emergencies caused by our procrastinations, is our Saint for today! Turn to Expedite when you are in dire need of speedy solutions. Little is known about Expedite although his story is celebrated throughout the world.

There are several versions of the Saint Francis medal and we have one that has the entire Peace Prayer engraved on the back. You’ll need a microscope or 3.5 “Readers” to get a good look at it, but the whole Peace Prayer of Saint Francis is there.

If you do not have and “never had” any form of mental illness you are surely one of the most fortunate people to ever exist on earth. Yet, you will still know someone else who does have some form of mental illness. Try to listen more and become attuned to physical cues that might help you glean better understanding to help those struggling with mental illness.

Because of her storied travels, Bridget has been designated the patroness of boatmen, travelers, mariners and sailors. And chicken farmers. We do not know why! Wear Saint Bridget’s medal to bestow peace and safety upon all your journeys, whether by land or sea!

Many consider Patrick to be the true leader of Irish-Catholics. Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City is probably the most famous Cathedral in America. Patrick’s Feast Day, March 17th, is oft-referred to as the day when everyone can share in the “Luck o’ the Irish.” Many wear Irish green and enjoy Irish frivolity on that day, now simply known as Saint Patrick’s Day.

Saint Kevin of Glendalough, was an Irish priest, who lived in what is now known as “Saint Kevin’s Bed.” (pictured below He loved spending time with animals and he is known for having a blackbird egg laid and hatched in his hand. We think Dr. Dolittle is modeled after Saint Kevin and his medal is the perfect gift for any animal lover. We often call saint Kevin the “Animal Whisperer” because he could talk to the animals.

Joseph is usually depicted as an older man, toiling away at his workbench as a carpenter, or he is shown holding the Christ Child, along with a lily, representing the trinity. We have both of these images on our hand-painted saint medals, pictured above. Joseph is obviously a patron of palliative care, a relatively recent development in medicine. The fresh idea surrounding palliative care is that all of those who die, and that would be all of us, should finish their final life moments without pain and with humble dignity. Dying can be a very easy death if we allow it to be so.
