Great news! Whoever you are, whatever you do, there is a patron saint who wants to help you specifically you with your life. There is a patron saint of booksellers. There is a patron saint of traveling salesmen. There are patron saints for vegetarians, cab drivers, and cancer patients. For astronauts, horseback riders, and dysfunctional families. For men who are physically unattractive. For families stressed by houseguests. These saints are ready to help, and their services are absolutely free.

This Saint's for You! describes the real-life histories of more than 300 saints and explains how they have become associated with certain people, places, and professions. Also included are images of 300 gorgeous full-color holy cards that depict these heavenly allies in all their glory. Whether you're a flight attendant or a stenographer (or an ice skater or a motorcyclist or a Girl Scout . . . ), we guarantee these saints will save your life!
