St. Francis Xavier & Patron Saints Charm Bracelet
A man of remarkable energy and organizational ability, Xavier ranks among the greatest missionaries of all times. Canonized in 1622. The list of his principal miracles may be found in the Bull of canonization. He was declared patron of the Orient in 1748, patron of the Faith in 1904, and with the French nun St. Teresa of Lisieux, patron of all missions in 1927. He is also the patron saint of sailors. His feast day is December 3.
I created this bracelet to make honor to this remarkable Saint and the ones including in this bracelet which are: St. John the Baptist, St. Monica, St. Augustine, St. Agnes, St. Marc, St. Therese, St. Florian, St. Ignatious, St. Padre Pio, St. Joan of Arc, St. Jude, St. Stephen all surrounded by beautiful green foil glass lampwork heart beads and green glass pearls.
