1" St. Sebastian MedalWHILE SUPPLIES LAST
WHILE THEY LAST!

Because Sebastian, an officer in the Roman guards, practiced his Christianity openly, he was charged with worshiping a non-Roman God. He was tied to a tree, shot with arrows, and left for dead. But he recovered and went on practicing his faith. For centuries, artists portrayed Sebastian as an extremely fit, handsome young man tied to a tree and pierced with arrows. He became the patron of athletes because of his physical endurance (surviving the attempted martyrdom) and tenacity.
