Saint Marie Goretti
Patron of girls, crime victims and parents who have lost a child
Maria was a beautiful farm girl in Italy, who died at the age of 12. She was attacked by a farm hand who tried to rape her. Maria yelled that it was a sin, but he tried to choke her into submission and stabbed her 14 times. Maria lived for two days, forgave her attacker and then died holding a crucifix and a medal of Our Lady. While in prison, her attacker had a vision of Maria as a young girl in white surrounded by lilies. When he awoke, he was truly sorry for his crime and devoted the rest of his life to God.
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.
