St. Martin de Porres - Pocket Saints


St. Martin de Porres was a humble man of eminence faith.  Due to discriminatory laws in Peru and his own humbleness, St. Martin applied to work as a "helper" of the Dominicans.  As his faith progressed, his brothers in faith turned a blind eye to the law and requested that he take vows as a member.  St. Martin had a deep devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, had miraculous knowledge, bi-location, and many other amazing graces given to him by God.  Throughout, St. Martin was humble and often said that everyone's work, even the most menial, was sacred.  St. Martin de Porres is the patron saint of barbers, hairdressers, social justice, those of mixed-race, and the poor.  

Introducing Pocket Saints from Gloria & Praise!  Each Pocket Saint is hand created from two wooden beads which are hand painted.  After being hand-painted & assembled, the "saints" are strung on Olive color premium gutted paracord and finished with a high-quality black metal spring mini-carabiner buckle.  

Pocket Saints are perfect for attaching to bags, your key chain, a zipper, or anywhere else you choose!  Pocket Saints make the perfect gift!

Note about handmade products: 

As with many of our products, these items are handmade in small batches.  This means that though we try to make products uniform, there may be slight differences from what you see in the product images (i.e. slight changes in knot formation, length, etc) due to the nature of handmade items.
