Garden Patron Saints

Spring has sprung… I am trying very hard to ignore the fact that it is still so cold outside. But alas we have crossed the threshold of the Spring equinox. I don’t know about you, but I am itching to get into my garden. We purchased a new home late last summer. This will be my first gardening season in this house.

Following our theme of a blog post about a Saint each week of March, I thought I would share some Patron Saints that might just bring good blessings to your garden… whether it be veggie or flower.

Our Saint Therese of Lisieux Therese Martin statue is a sculpted likeness of this beloved woman. She was cured from an illness at age 8 when a statue of the Blessed Virgin smiled at her. Many lives have been touched by her intercession. Prior to her death, she vowed, to “Spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses .” For this she is the Patron Saint of Florists.  Her roses continue to fall everywhere in the world to those who pray for her intercession.

Saint Fiacre Garden Sculpture is made of cast stone and is wonderful for the home or garden. Saint Fiacre was born in Ireland and raised in a monastery. Much of mankind learning and knowledge was brought to the monasteries and left in the care and protection of the monks. Travelers brought seeds and plant material, as well as cultural enlightenment from as far away as Rome and the Holy Land. Saint. Fiacres days at the monastery taught him a deep love of silence, the joys of planting and harvesting crops and an appreciation of nature. Drawn to the religious life and the desire to serve God in solitude, Fiacre decided to establish a hermitage for worship. Monks in those days were regarded as physicians of the body as well as the soul. Soon people were flocking to Fiacre for prayers, food and healing. He fed the hungry and healed the sick with herbs from his garden and prayed for all who came there. From his work be became Patron Saint of vegetable Garden and men who like to garden.  Our spiritual garden figurine of Saint Fiacre is cast in cast stone to add a meditative and miraculous presence to your own Eden.
