Name choice of Saint Patron as role models
For many people in Catholic regions, the name-day is just as important as the birthday. Parents usually choose their child's first name carefully, as it is something that every person carries for life.
In the Middle Ages it was a tradition to give a child its name according to the date of baptism. This means that if a child is baptized on the name day of George, for example, it can also be baptized with the name George or a related name. Therefore many people carry the name of a saint. For each first name there is also the appropriate name patron - for some, there are even several.
In addition to the patron saints, the Catholic Church also has a large number of patron saints, to whom certain characteristics and responsibilities are assigned. Patron saints are support in everyday life and helpers in need. There are patron saints who are assigned to a specific place - the so-called local saints. For example, Catherine of Siena and Francis of Assisi are considered the patron saints of Italy. Archangel Michael is the patron saint of Germany.
Even more visible in public are patron saints who watch over special professions. Almost every profession has a patron saint. Saint Florian is known to almost everyone as the patron saint of firefighters, while Saint Elizabeth is responsible for bakers.
By which attributes do you recognize patron saints?
Patron saints are depicted in typical posture and with their characteristic attributes in order to identify them or to illustrate the nature of their martyrdom. For example, Saint Florian is accompanied by a burning house and a water bucket. In the following table you will find some examples of saints and their attributes in Christianity.
|Saint Notburga||She is depicted as a peasant girl with sickle, sheaves of grain and jug.|
|Saint Paul||He is depicted with a book and sword.|
|Saint Peter||He is often depicted with keys in his hand or upside down T-cross and cock.|
