Five Little Known Patron Saints

Posted by Churchgoers on

Saints have always played a key role in the lives of the faithful. And these five saints—though not very well known—have also changed the lives of many devotees in one way or another. You may know some of them, but for the most part, they are as obscure as they are!

Here are the five little known patron saints below.

1. St. Genevieve, Patron Saint of Disasters

Born in Paris, St. Genevieve was a nun who witnessed her hometown being attacked by the Franks. She compromised her safety to find food and shelter for children. When the threat of Attila the Hun arrived, Paris was spared due to her presence.

2. St. Blaise, Patron Saint of Throat Ailments

A bishop and a martyr, St. Blaise cared for wild animals and was probably one of the earliest proponents of animal rights! He also helped a woman by saving the life of her son who had been choking on bone.

3. St. Denis, Patron Saint of Headaches

A martyr, the legend of St. Denis persisted through stories of his body carrying his head away from his execution after he had been beheaded. No wonder he became this sort of patron saint!

It makes you wonder how there could be a patron saint of the World Wide Web, but this Spanish saint—known to be a prolific writer and provider of information—is a rather fitting individual for the title. Perhaps he can help pray to make the internet connection better?

By now, you already know which patron saints to intervene, whether you have a headache, sore throat, going through a difficult marriage, are in the aftermath of a disaster, or when you just need to find something on the internet. Be sure to pick the right saint to pray for you!

4. St. Edward the Confessor, Patron Saint of Difficult Marriages
