St. John XXIII - Pocket Saints


Pope St. John XXIII, affectionately known as "Good Pope John" or "il Papa buono," was probably one of the most impactful people of his century and of modern Popes - yet, he preferred to stay out of the limelight and had a sense of "normal" or "ordinary" about him that has been admired by many.  Shortly after being ordained a priest, St. John was conscripted and served as a stretcher-bearer in World War 1.  He served in many other roles such as a nuncio, a delegate, cardinal, and, later, Pope.  He was instrumental in the Second Vatican Council, was a peacemaker, and lived, according to Pope Francis, a virtuous and model life.  

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.
