St. Charles Borromeo - Pocket Saints


St. Charles Borromeo was instrumental for working to ensure the Council of Trent remained in session and worked towards building unity and holiness during the time of the protestant reformation.  Born into nobility and of relation to the powerful Medici family, St. Charles became a Deacon, Cardinal, Priest, and Bishop.  He donated most of his income to charity and, at one point, fed upwards of 70,000 people a day during a plague and famine - eventually going into deep debt when his own money ran out.  Later, he continued to minister to the sick and dying.   St. Charles is the patron saint of Catechists & catechumens, seminarians, and more!

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.
