The Catholic Church has canonized more than 10,000 saints over the centuries, ranging from martyrs in ancient times to Joan of Arc to more modern figures such as Padre Pio. A great many of these saints are also “patron saints”, or those who directly advocate for a cause or a class of people in Heaven. This can range from patron saints of entire countries to more select subjects such as mad dogs or dentistry. There is even a patron saint of the Internet, held by a man who died more than 1,300 years before the World Wide Web was developed!
Whatever your occupation or need, this great range of saints has you covered. All you need to do is find exactly which saint will help you out. Below is a short list of saints matched with their patronages in order to help get you started. You’d be surprised at how much they have your back!
