There’s a Patron Saint for That!

15 Jul

Yesterday’s post was devoted to Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. I always thought that she should be the patron saint of fast-food restaurants (you know, “Take-it-with-ya”). In this spirit, I thought I would propose some other “patron saints” for your amusement as we look forward to the weekend.

Fast-food restaurants (Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha)
Chocolate milk (St. John Bosco)
Potpourri (St. Peter)
Bargain hunters (St. Francis de Sales)
Second helpings (St. Thomas More)
Pooty cats (St. Sylvester)
Bald dudes, bad hair days (St. Hedwig)
Furniture (Chair of St. Peter)
Forest fires (St. Blase)
Former first ladies (St. Hilary of Poitiers)
Distilleries (St. Pius V)
