Wishing to leave exile in France and open a convent in Lousiana for others who escaped the French rule, Mother Saint Michel wrote to the Pope for permission. She prayed to Mary and wished to honor her as Our Lady of Prompt Succor in Louisianna if the Pope granted permission. Because of her prayers, the Pope granted permission and, in thanksgiving, Mother Saint Michel ordered the creation of a statue which has been displayed in Louisiana ever since. Andrew Jackson also prayed before this statue before the Battle of New Orleans. The Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Prompt Succor is the patron of Louisianna and against hurricanes.
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.
