Saint Florian
Patron of firefighters, Poland, and Austria; protector from floods

Florian was an officer in the Roman army in Austria. He was well known for his bravery and is said to have stopped a town from burning by saying a prayer and throwing a single bucket of water on it. When ordered to execute a group of Christians, Florian refused and proclaimed that he was a Christian also. He was sentenced to be burned to death. He stated he would climb to heaven on the flames. Instead, Florian was then thrown in a river with a stone around his neck to be drowned.

For centuries, we have called upon our patron saints knowing that they will be our advocates and provide us strength. The exemplary lives of the saints serve as examples to us. Having a special saint to call on for each of our needs gives us hope, encouragement and protection. Our handmade porcelain portraits help to keep your patron saint close to you.

Our Patron Saints line of porcelain jewelry comes packaged in a velvet-lined box with a card describing the meaning of each design and it’s religious symbolism.

Pendants are on a 32 inch braided rayon cord.
