I could spend hours pouring over the fascinating stories and gorgeous illustrations in Tom Morgan's gift book, Saints: A Visual Almanac of the Virtuous, Pure, Praiseworthy, and Good. It is so much fun to look up the saints for different professions, hobbies, and ailments. For instance, Saint Jerome is the patron saint of librarians, Saint Cecilia watches over musicians, and there are two patron saints for syphilis sufferers. Misplace something? Pray to Saint Antony of Padua. Stressed out? Try Saint Dympna.
