“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…

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.” (From the back  cover)
