LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The tradition of wearing religious jewelry dates back to the earliest civilizations with even the ancient Jews adorning their priests and leaders with symbols and reminders of God's favor.

The tradition has lasted into modern times and is part of Catholic iconography, whereby wearers of special items invoke the protection and blessings of the saints and other religious figures, and are reminded to emulate their example.

Dear Catholic Shopper, we are having an exclusive sale of Catholic jewelry on Catholic Shopping .com. The sale starts tomorrow, but as a THANK YOU for reading Catholic Online, you can have early access. Click this link to shop early! Sale ends July 4. There are thousands of items on sale so be sure to search for what interests you.

A person who has a special calling to aid the poor may wear a St. Francis medal. A teacher may wear the medal of St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton or St. Thomas Aquinas. A Native American, St. Kateri Tekakwitha.

The cross is also a common choice, worn by nearly all Christians as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus Christ to save us from our sins and open the way to heaven.

When you wear one of these quality gold, silver, or pewter medals you allow the item to remind you of who you are as a person, on the inside. It may be an outward adornment, but it's an important hallmark of your character. Religious people wear religious medals and keep them close to their hearts.

As Catholics we believe these items are more than just jewelry. They invoke the blessings of the saints, of Christ, and of our brothers and sisters who join us in devotion.

If you have a loved one who must depart, or faces danger, there are medals for that occasion too. St. Michael the Archangel is legendary for his protection as is St. Christopher for those who travel.

If you would like to browse our collection and consider buying one of these quality medals from Catholic Shopping .com, now is the best time of the year to do it. Catholic Shopping .com is having a 72-hour sale in which all Bliss-manufactured products are 15 percent off. This is the steepest discount we have ever offered on one of our most popular products.

The sale is our way of passing on the blessings and wonder of the saints as well as the Catholic tradition of fine Christian jewelry to you.
