Where Is A Good Saint When You Need One?

Did you ever wonder just how many saints there are? Or need one for a particular problem? Try calling on some of these.

St. Florian, Patron Saint of soap boilers.

St. Goar of Aquitaine, Patron Saint of champagne bottlers.

I wonder if anyone on Donld Trump's show has ever prayed to St. John Bosco, the parton of apprentices.
