Heaven Help Us!

Your days of worry and frustration are over. Whoever you are, whatever you do, there’s a patron saint who wants to help you—specifically you—with your troubles. This Saint Will Change Your Life features 300 patron saints for every person and situation imaginable.

     •  There are patron saints for travelers, vegetarians, and women in labor.

     •  For gamblers, lawyers, and parents with disappointing children.

     •  For families stressed by houseguests.

     •  For victims of toothaches, appendicitis, and sore throats.

     •  For beekeepers, booksellers, sailors, schoolgirls, and even (we kid you not) vampire hunters!

This Saint Will Change Your Life! describes the real-life histories of an amazing variety of holy figures from the Christian faith and reveals how each became associated with particular beneficiaries. Also included are reproductions of 300 full-color holy cards depicting these heavenly helpers in all their glory.
