Heaven Help Us: 300 Patron Saints to Call Upon for Every Occasion


Whoever you are, whatever you do, there's a patron saint who wants to help you—specifically you—with your troubles. Arranged by need and illustrated with color reproductions of vintage holy cards, this petitioner's catalog introduces 300 of these sanctified interceders, describing their lives and legends, and why they can be called upon. Find the gentle guardian of gamblers, lawyers, and parents with disappointing children. If you're opposed to company, praise the saint for families stressed by houseguests. And whatever your occupation or ailment, you may find a patron for beekeepers, toothache sufferers, schoolgirls, appendicitis patients, and even (would you believe?) vampire hunters.
