Actually Priests do bless them,thats a fact.Saints dont guarentee wealth, however they do specialize such has St Michael for Police,St Jude for disperate Occasions StPeregrine for cancer http://www.saintgeo....egrine.htm  the list go's on.

Forgot to add some medals can be quite expensive made of gold and ancient.Also like Thailand this veneration of the Saints can be distorted such has in Latin America where they mix local native beliefs with worship of the Saints.This happens a lot in Brazil and Peru.I suspect in Thailand animist beliefs get mixed in with Buddhism
