Prayer is an essential tool for healing and is an excellent source of comfort, courage and strength for those who are suffering. During times of illness, disease or a life challenge, nothing is more important than to offer prayer and to join with others in assurance of these prayers.
In addition to prayer, the Saints protect us against harm, help strengthen our faith and offer spiritual guidance and healing. They are our models of prayer and their intercession helps present powerful prayers of healing to God on our behalf.
Our new Patron Saints of Healing line offers hope and comfort to those who seek healing through the intercession of the Saints. Each holy card and medal set includes a high-quality prayer card that contains novena prayers specific to the affliction, a short biography of the patron saint and an oxidized silver patron saint medal.

Saint Nicholas was born at Patara in Lycia, a province of Asia Minor, during the third century. His parents, who were devout Christians and extremely wealthy, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. He used his entire inheritance to help the poor, the sick, and children in need. He often went about it in secret, expecting nothing in return.
Nicholas was sent to live in a monastery and, at the age of 17, became one of the youngest priests ever. Before long, his charity and generosity became known throughout the land. Nicholas had dedicated his life to serving God and in the early part of the fourth century was made Bishop of Myra. It was said that he was not just able to nurse sick children back to health; he could raise them from the dead.
He died in 342 and and is recognized today as the protector and patron of all children - sick or healthy. His feast day is December 6th.
Saint Nicholas, Pray for Us.
