Saint Lawrence is the patron saint deacons. He is depicted here wearing a dalmatic, the vestment of the deacon. In his right hand he holds the book of Gospels and in his left he hold a chalice. Deacons are ordained to a ministry of the Word and the liturgy in addition to their service to the people of God. Behind him is the gridiron and the fire that were the instruments of his martyrdom. His role as a martyr is also represented by the palm.
