Saint Peter (Simon) Also known as Simon Peter. Saint Peter was born at Bethsaida, near the Sea of Galilee. According to the New Testament Peter was one of the apostles chosen by Jesus from his first disciples. Originally a fisherman, he was assigned a leadership role and was with Jesus during events witnessed by only a few apostles.
Patron Saints, because they have already transcended to the metaphysical, are able to intercede effectively for the needs of their special charges. Some consider it a special devotion to God by displaying humility in asking a saint for intercession rather than expecting to be answered themselves.
These traditional medals are made from the highest-grade pewter. Every Medal comes with a 24" stainless steel chain and in a jewelry box.
