Product DescriptionThe Bethany Collection is a line of beautifully detailed pewter saint statues depicting the saints in poses with which we are familiar and, in many cases, including a symbol for which the saint is known. St. James is a well known saint referred to by Jesus as one of the "Sons of Thunder". The statue is made of fine pewter and stands 3-1/2 inches tall with the name of Saint James engraved on the base. Included with the statue is a laminated prayer card which contains prayers to that specific saint. The statue is presented in a window gift box that allows the statue to be seen while keeping it secure.
St. James is the patron saint of pilgrims resulting from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land where he was subsequently beheaded. He was a great military leader and is the military patron saint of Spain. Some young men also choose Saint James for their Confirmation saint with the intent of emulating the good qualities of this particular saint so the statue would be an appropriate gift to give for that occasion also. The size of the statue enables it to be easily displayed on a shelf, desk or night table.
