A golden, double-chained necklace featuring a bee.
The Church has long upheld the bee as a model of discipleship.
- St. John Chrysostom proclaims that "The bee is more honored than other animals, not because it labors, but because it labors for others" (12th Homily).
- Pope Pius XI instructs Christian teachers to imitate the bee "which takes the choicest part of the flower and leaves the rest" (Divini illius Magistri, n. 87).
- Pope Pius XII exhorts us to be more trusting and charitable, so that we "like the bees will know how to discover in the humblest souls the perfume of nobility and of eminent virtues" (Nov. 12, 1948).
May the tireless working for the common good of the hive inspire you to pray without ceasing and work for the kingdom of God.
Pairs well with the Pearl and Gold Bee Bracelet (1978-2028G) and the Golden Bee Earrings (1978-1029G).
