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.

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.
