 Our Description

Make the saints part of your everyday life. Saints for Every Member of Your Family, Every profession, Every Ailment, Every Emergency, and Even Every Amusement

Who would have guessed that there is a patron saint for astronauts, or zookeepers, or the internet? You know that you can pray to St. Blaise to help protect you from a sore throat, but which saint will protect you from a snakebite or from being struck by lightning?

With hundreds of listings of patron saints, you'll find heavenly helpers for just about anything and everything.

You'll meet the patron saints of bankers, bakers, florists, plumbers, and highway construction crews. You'll learn which saint to invoke against headache, toothache, and appendicitis. And you'll discover that there are patron saints to save the whales, for the right-to-life movement, environmentalists, and IT workers. And there are several patron saints for stressed wives and mothers.

Each entry explains why the saint is patron of whatever he or she is patron of, includes a summary of the saint's life, and highlights unusual or little-known facts about the saint. The book also includes an index for easy reference.
