Your days of worry and frustration are over. Whoever you are, whatever you do, there’s a patron saint who wants to help you—specifically you—with your troubles. This Saint Will Change Your Life features 300 patron saints for every person and situation imaginable.
• There are patron saints for travelers, vegetarians, and women in labor.
• For gamblers, lawyers, and parents with disappointing children.
• For families stressed by houseguests.
• For victims of toothaches, appendicitis, and sore throats.
• For beekeepers, booksellers, sailors, schoolgirls, and even (we kid you not) vampire hunters!
This Saint Will Change Your Life! describes the real-life histories of an amazing variety of holy figures from the Christian faith and reveals how each became associated with particular beneficiaries. Also included are reproductions of 300 full-color holy cards depicting these heavenly helpers in all their glory.
Thomas J. Craughwell has written about saints for the Wall Street Journal, Inside the Vatican, and Catholic Digest, among other national publications. He lives in New York.
