St. Anthony: Patron of lost objects, things that are hoped for & the poor
Saint Anthony left his wealthy family in Portugal to become a poor Franciscan priest. He shipwrecked on his way to evangelize and joined other brothers living in a cave in San Paolo near a monastery. There, he became a legendary speaker, attracting crowds wherever he went. Legend says that even fish would gather to hear him speak. St. Anthony is one of the most beloved of all saints.
St. Christopher: (died circa 251) Patron of travelers
St. Christopher was a powerful man who had the job of carrying travelers across a river. When a small child asked to be carried, Christopher lifted him onto his shoulders. With each step the child became heavier until Christopher thought he might drop the child, but he struggled to the other side. It was then revealed that the child Christopher carried was the Christ Child carrying the weight of the sins of the world.
St. Francis: (circa 1181-1226) Patron of animals, the environment & Italy
St. Francis was born in Italy. He was a wealthy man but was always sympathetic to the poor. St Francis believed that he was told by God to rebuild the Catholic Church. He did this by founding the order of the Franciscan brothers and nuns based on a foundation of merciful works, helping the poor and respect and love for all of God’s creations. Legend says that Francis was able to speak to the animals, thus his patronage of animals.
St. Genesius of Rome: (circa 3rd century) Patron of actors, comedians, clowns, converts, dancers, and musicians
Genesius was an actor and comedian martyred in the 3rd century. He routinely performed in plays that ridiculed Christianity. But in the midst of a performance for the Emperor of Rome, Genesius experienced a radical spiritual transformation, and proclaimed a newfound faith in Christianity. Despite the Emperor’s fury, the actor embraced his conversion and chose to endure torture rather than renounce it. He was beheaded for his faith.
St. Juan Diego: (1474-1548) First Evangelist of the Americas
Juan Diego lived a simple life near what is now Mexico City. As he walked to church one day, he had a vision of the Virgin Mary. She asked him to tell the Bishop to build a church on that site. The bishop asked Juan for proof. At the site of his vision, Juan found a eld a flowers growing in the frozen soil. He gathered them in his cloak to bring to the bishop. When he opened his cloak, there was a glowing image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the fabric inside. St. Juan Diego became the first evangelist of the Americas.
St. Kevin of Glendalough: (circa 498-618) Patron of Dublin, Ireland, blackbirds, and a long life
Kevin was born to nobility in Ireland, and known there as “Cóemgen,” which means “gentle one.” He became a hermit in Glendalough and founded the rst monastery there. Once, while he held his arms outstretched in silent prayer, a blackbird landed in his open hand, built a small nest and laid its eggs. The gentle hermit held that position in stillness until the edglings hatched. Reportedly, St. Kevin lived to be 120 years old.
St. Michael: Patron of police, soldiers & all protectors
St. Michael is one of three archangels who is believed to be closest to God. Devotion to Michael is common to Christians, Muslims and Jews. He is traditionally pictured with the Latin, “Quis ut Deus”, meaning “who is like God” on his chest. As a warrior, Michael led the battle against the angels who rejected God to follow the fallen Lucifer. The knights of the Middle Ages invoked St. Michael as their patron.
St. Patrick: (circa 387-461) Patron of Ireland
St. Patrick was the son of a prominent Roman family in Scotland. At the age of 16 he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland. After years as a slave, Patrick escaped only to return to Ireland. He traveled across the country for the next 30 years preaching and baptizing the Irish people. St. Patrick used the three leaves and single stem of Ireland’s shamrock flower to explain the Holy Trinity. Legend is that St. Patrick drove the snakes from Ireland!
