LAMINATED HOLY CARD - ST. SEBASTIAN
A soldier of the imperial army from Narbonne (Gaul) or Milan (according to St. Ambrose), he was martyred for the Faith at Rome during the reign of the Emperor Diocletian. The Roman liturgy has always accorded him a privileged place and iconography depicts him as a martyr, pierced by arrows. St. Sebastian is invoked for healing from both physical and spiritual wounds and as the patron saint of athletes. This laminated holy card measures 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".
