St EUSTACE
Also known as EUSTACHIUS

Patron Saint of Fire Prevention and Firefighters, also Madrid

Roman General out hunting. Comes across stag with crucifix between antlers. Instantly converted. Converts family. All baptized.

Wife captured by pirates. Two sons seized by wolf and lion. All miraculously saved by the trainee Saint.

Arrested as heretics and thrown into animal pit. Animals lick them with love.

Just when you think there should be a happy ending we can only say sorry. They were all roasted inside a brazen bull.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest St Eustace graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, St Eustace movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about St Eustace statues, sculptures or carved figurines of St Eustace. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
