I am not a happy camper right now...I just spent 2 frickin hrs typing a post because I'm such a shitty typist, only to have it not publish because of some frickin error that I've never heard of!!!
Let's try this again...I was about due for a more serious post, but it seems that no matter what subject you try and research, some elements of humor keep popping up.
The Roman Catholic Church has over 5,000 saints, many of them are "Patron Saints"...
Protectors of certain professions, sick people, and even hobbies. Here are a few of the more interesting ones...
Saint Matthew: Patron Saint of Accountants ( He used to be a tax collector )
Saint Joseph of Cupertino: Patron Saint of Air Travellers ( Nicknamed the Flying Friar, he could levitate )
Saint Matrona: Patron Saint of Dysentery Sufferers.
Saint Louis IX of France : Patron Saint of Button Makers.
Saint Anne: Patron Saint of Women in Labor. ( Not to be confused with Saint John Thwing, Patron Saint of Women in 'difficult' labor )
Saint Nicholas of Myra: Patron Saint of Children and Pawnbrokers
Saint Bernardino of Siena: Patron Saint of Advertisers and Horseness
Saint Blaise: Patron Saint of Throats ( He saved a child from choking ) and Diseased Cattle ( He also healed Animals )
Saint Joseph: Patron Saint of Opposition to Atheistic Communism.
Saint Joseph of Arimathea: Patron Saint of Funeral Directors.
Saint Eligius: Patron Saint of Gas Station Workers. ( He miraculously cured horses, the precursor to automobiles )
Saint Martin de Porres: Patron Saint of Race Relations, Social Justice, and Italian Hairdressers.
Saint Martha: Patron Saint of Dietitians.
Saint Adrian of Nicomedia: Patron Saint of Arms Dealers.
Saint Fiacre: Patron Saint of Taxi Drivers, Hemorrhoid Sufferers, and Venereal Disease.
Certainly from this list, theres a Saint just for you.....Peace ... Galen
