The St. Peter's Fish Oven Rack Puller and Pusher is a great way to protect yourself from the burns and hazards of pulling and pushing hot oven racks from the oven.
'Ichthys' is the Greek word for fish. In the first century the Christians used it as an acrostic for Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter or Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour. In the centuries of Roman persecution, Christians upon meeting a stranger on the road would draw one arc of the simple fish outline in the dirt and the other if he be a Christian, would complete the arc to make the 'Jesus Fish'.
The hardwood to make St. Peter's Fish Oven Rack Puller comes from the original 1875 pews from Old St. Patrick Oratory church in Kansas City, MO. They are handcrafted by Master Woodcarver and parishioner Bill Fitzgibbons.
Every St. Peter's Fish Oven Rack Puller comes with a tag containing this information and an image of St. Raphael's Miraculous Draught of Fishes.
Each St. Peter's Fish Oven Rack Puller measures approximately 14.5 inches in length.
