Symbolism and application of the item

This nice pendant is dedicated to the venerable Apollinaria. Saint Apollinaria (+ 470) was the daughter of a ...high-ranking Roman official who served under emperor Leo I. From a young age, Apollinaria strove to devote herself to Christ. During a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, she left her servants and withdrew to Egypt, where she became a hermit.  Many years later according to the heavenly revelation, she came to the skete to Macarius of Egypt, calling herself the monk Dorotheos. God did not reveal her secrets. In the skete she became famous for her ascetic life. It happened so that she healed even her sister, who didn't recognize her. After this miracle in the course of events, she returned home and revealed her secret. But soon the joy of meeting was replaced by sadness, as Apollinaria returned to the skete and after some time peacefully died there. Only then did it become clear that the monk Dorotheos was a woman, who led the same ascetic life as men.
