A St. Florian Pendant brings the patron saint of fire, firefighters
and chimney sweeps into your life and keeps him close to you.
St. Florian, who became a saint during Roman times when he professed
his faith and was martyred for it, is a powerful saint and the
chosen one of firefighters. He was killed by being thrown into
the river Enns with a millstone around his neck, and so he is
also the patron saint offering protection against floods and drowning.
Saint Florian pendants come in a variety of metals, so you're
sure to find one that suits your tastes and budget. Silver St.
Florian pendants are good choices because sterling silver, in
particular, holds up very well to daily wear. The pendants are
often fashioned so they can be attached to either a chain around
your neck or to a charm bracelet. A small St. Florian pendant
can be a lovely addition to any jewelry box.
Men-firefighters in particular-also enjoy wearing a St. Florian
pendant. The pendants can be hung on a chain and worn around the
neck, either inside or outside of clothing. Many people associated
with water, such as lifeguards or swim instructors, also consider
St. Florian to be their patron saint, as he is closely associated
with both fire and water.
St. Florian's strength was in his faith, and a St. Florian pendant
can be a way for you to show the world the strength of your own
faith. To know you're protected by him no matter where you are
is a very comforting thought, and you can keep St. Florian near
in your thoughts and prayers by taking his image along with you
on a pendant.
