Product Description

Lazarus is the poor man at the gate of the rich man in Christ's parable related in Luke. (Luke 16:19-31) His name was perpetuated in the Middle Ages by such words as Lazaretto (hospital), Lazarone (a beggar in the street), and the Order of St. Lazarus, which though a military order, had as one of its objectives, the care of lepers. His feast day is June 21st.

This is St. Lazarus the Leper. Christ saw him on the streets and stopped to wash his feet and simultaneously healed him of leprosy. He's venerated by many because he is considered to be a healer.

He is also identified as yoruba in the santeria religion. However many other saints and virgins are identified by African names in this religion. It is NOT a fake saint.

His feast day isn't June 21st, though. Western Catholics celebrate it on December 17 and Eastern Orthodox the Saturday before Easter.
