Who was St. Genesius, and why is he the patron saint of actors? Why is St. Thé:rèse of Lisieux, who was a cloistered nun, the patron saint of missionaries? Is there a patron saint for automobile mechanics? How about for athletes?
Bestselling Catholic writer Mitch Finley answers these questions and more in this delightful book of one hundred saints and the occupations, groups, or causes they are associated with. These are listed alphabetically and cross indexed with a list of the saints featured in the book, making it easy to find either the saint or the cause. In each short selection, Finley describes the life of the saint and why he or she has been selected as a patron.
