This statue honors St. John the Apostle and Evangelist. The statue is made of a resin and stone mix and measures 3/1/2 inches high and 2 inches wide. It comes in a box which has a biography of and prayer to St. John included on the box. St. John was said to be loved by Jesus above the other apostles. He was the one in whom Jesus entrusted the care of his mother Mary, the only one who did not abandon Jesus during his Passion, the first to reach the opened tomb and the first to recognize the risen Jesus when he appeared at the Lake of Tiberias.

The statue of St. John shows him with an eagle, one of the symbols envisioned in the book of Revelation which John is believed to have written. The chalice, which may refer to the words of Jesus when he said "my chalice you shall drink", may also refer to a time when he was imprisoned and unsuccessfully poisoned while the scrolls refer to the writings of John which include his Gospel and three Epistles and possibly Revelation. The statue would be an appropriate gift to give to anyone named John but especially to the young man who has chosen John as his Confirmation name. St. John is the patron saint of friendship, writers and burn victims.
