Enjoy the protection of two saints on this silver oxidized St. Sebastian and St. Christopher medal. Measuring 7/8 inches and oval shaped, this saints medal artfully portrays them inspired by classic painting images. St. Sebastian, an early Christian martyr, was sentenced to death by arrows. This saints medal has a traditional depiction showing him pierced with arrows. The arrows, however, failed to kill him, and after his miraculous recovery, he was again sentenced to death. He is the patron saint of athletes, archery and gardeners. St. Sebastian's feast day is celebrated on January 20.

St. Christopher has been one of the most popular saints since the middle ages. The saints medal shows him carrying the Christ child on his back across a river. With each step, the child became more heavy and difficult to bear. When they reached the opposite shore, the child revealed himself as Jesus and told Christopher he had carried the weight of the world on his shoulders. Since then, St. Christopher has become the patron saint of automobiles, motorists, and travelers. If you have an athlete in the family that travels, this is the perfect gift!
