Who knew there were so many of them?

Some favorites:

-Albinus of Angers, Patron Saint Against Pirate Attack

Julian the Hospitaller, Patron Saint of Circus Workers

Marculf, Patron Saint Against Eczema

Isidore of Seville, Patron Saint of the Internet

Bernadine of Siena, Patron Saint of Public Relations

Joseph, Patron Saint of People Who Fight Against Communism

Drogo, Patron Saint of People Who Are Unattractive

No kidding. Read ’em and weep, boys.

    U have obviously seen “Saints Protect Us”? Some saints do double duty and
    are patrons for more than one job. There’s even a patron saint of prison
    guards. And airline pilots and undertakers and sewage treatment plant workers.

    But not to worry. If you don’t need a patron saint, you don’t need one. There
    are some OK saints. Like Francis of Assisi is patron of the animals. And if
    you don’t hate communism, there is Chesucristo, patron saint of the Cuban
    Revolution. I like Dymphna, Patron Saint of the Insane. natch.

    Holy Tic Toc batman, it’s time to go clip roses for Dymphna.
