Wooden pendant amulet with Saint Gregory

A wonderful wood-carved amulet from Mount Athos with a relief representation of Saint Gregory.

It is an elegant & handy handiwork made in linden or cherry wood, by monks with great skill in wood processing. In a relatively small size and with a well-thought-out construction (thanks to the cord on top), it can be placed anywhere in the house, in the car or even in a bag, so that the believer feels that he always has the Grace and protection of the Saint close to him.

At the same time, it can be a very beautiful gift for the people we love.

On the back is the exact name of the representation.

Saint Gregory the Theologian (25 January)

Saint Gregory the Theologian was born in 329 AD  to a holy family. His father was Gregory, bishop of Nazianzus (1 January) and his mother was Nonna (5 August). He had two brothers: Caesarius (9 March) and Sister Gorgonia (23 February).

He was a classmate of Basil the Great (January 1). After his studies, he returned to his homeland where his father ordained him an elder. But St. Gregory prefers the quietness of the retreat to Pontus, near his friend Basil, for more exercise in the spiritual life.

At the age of 43, God elevated him to the episcopal office and divine Providence brought him to Constantinople (378 AD), where he defended Orthodoxy in an amazing way and  hit the Martians hard. The five famous  theological speeches he gave justly earned him the title of Theologian.

Saint Gregory the Theologian is one of the greatest spirits of Christianity and one of the brightest athletes of the Orthodox faith.

His holy skull is kept in the Holy Monastery of Vatopedi, on Mount Athos, while his holy relics are kept in his homonymous Church in Nea Karvali.
