This beautiful, inspirational medal commemorates St. John the Baptist. St. John is portrayed holding up his right hand to give a blessing. On his left side he holds a cross. In traditional Christian iconography the saints who suffered martyrdom are portrayed holding a cross. The inscription around the border reads "SAINT JOHN BAPTIST PRAY FOR US". St. John the Baptist is also known as St. John the Forerunner in the Orthodox Christian Tradition.
The Nativity of St. John is celebrated on June 24. Other days for the commemoration of St. John include the Beheading of St. John on August 29 and the Conception of St. John on September 23. Since the Feast of Epiphany (Theophany) celebrates the Baptism of Jesus on January 6, St. John is also remembered on January 7. The celebration on January 7 is called The Synaxis of St. John the Forerunner in the Orthodox Christian Tradition.
St. John the Baptist is the patron saint of builders, tailors, printers, baptism, conversion to faith, people dealing with the effects of storms, and people in need of healing from spasms or seizures. St. John is also the patron saint of Puerto Rico, Jordan, Quebec, Canada; Charleston, South Carolina; Cornwall, England; and many cities in Italy.
