Saint Dominic Medal at

Many people search for and wear patron saint medals as signs of their faith and as a way to center their lives around their saint and his or her deeds and life. Patron saint medals are often believed to afford protection by the patron saint and be a way to request intercession by that saint in their lives.

The Dominican Order

St. Dominic, well known as the patron saint of astronomers and astronomy, as well as falsely accused persons, is a popular saint. He is also the founder of the Order of Preachers, more commonly known as the Dominicans.Because of his close association with astronomy, many St. Dominic Medals include a star. His mother reported seeing a star shining from his chest on the day of his baptism, and this may be part of the reason he became the patron saint of astronomers and scientists. In many patron saint charms he is pictured over a book, for he was always a man of learning.

The Dominican Order chose the colors of black and white to represent the balance between penance and purity, but those colors also represent the black night sky with the white sparks of stars. The stars and the study of astronomy also remind us of the holy star that lit the way in Bethlehem for the three wise men who discovered the birth of Jesus. Much of the St. Dominic jewelry available includes the colors black and white for those reasons.

Friday, December 23, 2011 - Patron Saints

The word "saint" comes from the Latin word sanctus, which translates to "consecrated" or "holy." Saints are men and women who have lived their lives (and very often gave them up freely) in such a way as to be rewarded with the Kingdom of God. The road to being officially recognized by the Church as a saint in a long one. In the earliest stage, the saint-in-the-making is identified as a "Servant of God." -  Patron Saints

That stage is followed by a recognition of being "Venerable" and then "Blessed" before being recognized by the Church as a saint or "Friend of God." This official recognition by the Church as a saint comes at the conclusion of the process and ceremony called "canonization."

These saints, living exemplary lives, provide for us examples to follow so that we may, in turn, follow them to Heaven. "Feast Days" are recognized for each saint. These feast days are very often the day of the year in which they died, especially if they gave up their lives for their faith. These special saints that gave up their lives for their faith are called "martyrs."
