    st.sebastian helped many people. he is my favorite saint. he gave me great joy! i think the cool part is that he got shot with arrows and survived being a martyr would stink but he gave up his life to help us. u can see in a lot of saints that they really cared about Jesus srry for a really long seech thing but i think peeps should no!!!

    Ever since I started to go to church and was able to learn about saints. I was told that my surname was that of a great saint,now looking at the life of Saint Sebastien I am glad to have a saint name.

    I found a st sebastian necklace in a parking lot n ever since that day I haven't taken it off. when I found off all the amazing things he did, n how many ppl he helped...i just can't take it off from around my neck.. and I am also a huge archer. I've had great luck with all my activities involving strength n fitness, including firefighting, n I think this, St. Sebastian, Pray For Us,,, necklace is inspiring me to do much more then I thought I could..
