This silicone rosary is named after St. John the Baptist. John, the cousin of Jesus is known for his evangelization and the baptizing of the Lord. He was born through the intercession of God to Zachariah and Elizabeth, who were otherwise too old to have children. When Mary came to help Elizabeth, John left for joy in her womb when hearing her speak as he knew the Christ child was near. Not much is known about his younger years and his public ministry began when he was about 30 years old. He attracted large crowds calling for repentance and baptism by water. Jesus himself came to John to be baptized, and after, the heavens opened up and the Spirit of God was seen as a Dove and the voice of God was heard saying "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." John had his followers follow Christ and these were among the very first Christians. John’s popularity grew and finally caught the attention of King Herod. King Herod had John arrested and thrown into jail. John met and spoke with Herod many times and when the conversation turned to his wife, John was quick to condemn the marriage as unlawful. This condemnation ultimately led to his death. He died by beheading between 33-36AD. John the Baptist is also known as John the Forerunner and his feast day is June 24th. He is the patron saint of Jordan, Puerto Rico, Knights Hospitaller of Jerusalem, French Canada, Newfoundland, Cesena, Florence, Genoa, Monza, Perth (Scotland), Porto, San Juan, Turin, Xewkija, and many other places
