Who are the Patron Saint of Sailors?

There are actually four people who are considered the patron saint of sailors; Saint Brendan, Saint Nicholas of Myra, Saint Erasmus, and Saint Francis of Paola. Saint Brendan of Clonfert was one of the twelve apostles of Ireland. Born in 484, he became an ordained minister in 512 and built a monastery in Ardfert, the base of Mounty Randon, and Shanakeel. Although not a lot is known about his life, he is famous for the story of The Voyage of Saint Brendan where he had set out to find the Garden of Eden. The tale includes him finding St. Brendan’s Island and fighting off giant sea monsters. He died in 577 while visiting his sister in Annaghdown.
In addition to being the patron saint of sailors, Saint Nicholas of Myra also inspired the folklore surround the legend of Santa Claus. He enjoyed giving gifts in secret and is well known for putting coins in people’s shoes if they left them out. Born to wealthy parents, he became the Greek Bishop of Myra. He is associated with a number of miracles including one where he convinced sailors to give his town a section of the wheat they were carrying for the Emperor of Byzantium. Though they feared retribution, they gave him what he asked. However, when they arrived in the capital they found that the load weight had not changed and they were able to pass inspection.

St. Jude Thaddeus Medals

Saint Jude is a Christian saint and one of the twelve apostles of Jesus. His other names are Jude Thaddaeus and Jude Lebbeus. St. Jude is also known as Saint Thaddeus, alternatively spelled "Thaddæus" or "Thaddaeus" in different versions of the Bible, and Saint Matfiy in Russian Orthodox tradition (along with Saint Jude). He should not be confused with Judas Iscariot, yet another apostle, who betrayed Jesus and later committed suicide.

St. Jude was a brother of Saint James the Less, and a relative of Jesus. Mark 6:3 states about Jesus: "Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" (New International Version). In the Acts of Thomas, one of the New Testament apocrypha, written in Syria in the early 3rd century, he was identified with Jude Thomas, which is the full name of the apostle Thomas according to Syrian tradition...

Park Meadows Jewelry store returns to Colorado

James Avery, onetime CU instructor, opens Park Meadows store...

James Avery was teaching industrial design at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1951 when he created his first piece of jewelry. Now he's back in the state with the opening today of his first Colorado jewelry store, at Park Meadows mall. James Avery stores still have a large supply of religious jewelry, with plenty of crosses, fish, doves and butterflies. Increasingly over the years, though, the company has widened its focus to include themes from nature and other cultures, said Howell Rideout, the company's vice president for marketing and development.

All the creating and crafting of the products is done by company employees, and the business even makes the distressed-wood cabinets and doors that go in the jewelry stores. The pieces, crafted in silver or gold, range from $20 to $2,000.

The whole idea is not to be 'in your face' with the products, but more of an elegant approach, like a living room,
Rideout said of the stores.

The mall, which already has seven higher-end jewelry retailers, believes there's also room for Paul Avery, said retail marketing manager Stephanie Jackson.

They have a a very good reputation, and they're a very well-known brand name in the West,
she said.

Also, the company comes to town with a ready-made Colorado customer base of about 14,000 who buy from Avery's catalogs and Web site.

Avery's company is mostly owned by the family, said son and company President Chris Avery, who left an anesthesiology practice 13 years ago to help the company formulate a succession plan.

It was only supposed to be temporary, three or four years at the most,
he said.
But by then, I was immersed in the business. And then we had new goals, so I wanted to see if we could achieve those.
His brother Paul, who trained in horticulture, is an executive vice president at the company, and their dad still is chairman and chief executive officer.

And he still designs and creates the jewelry he passionately believes in...
