Article Date: September 22, 2010
Who was St. Genesius?
Did you know he is the patron saint of actors? Why is St. Therese of Lisieux, who was a cloistered nun, the patron saint of missionaries? Is there a patron saint for automobile mechanics or for athletes? Actually there is! Finley answers these questions and more in this book of 100 saints and the occupations, groups or causes with which they are associated.
Best-selling 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 section, Finley describes the life of the saint and why he or she has been selected as a patron.
Finley's popular style makes this book fun to read.
A great resource to keep on your shelf for years to come.
A thoughtful gift for Confirmation or other occasions.
