St. Eligius – Patron saint of artisans and craftsmen

I also happen to be a big fan of Saint Bernards, they are so cute with the little barrel under their chin!

Saint Leo the Great, cause he scared off Attila the Hun.
Saint Michael the Archangel, cause he’s a badass.
I know he’s not a saint, but I really liked John Paul II.

Patrick.
He gives me a reason to party with my family and drink green beer.

Saint Louis’ most significant contribution to my life is getting a city named after him. Which is pretty good, but eh.
I like St. Anthony, but only because of a mildly irreverent children’s book featuring a character who, whilst feeling a bit perverse, hid the guy’s statue: whose help do you enlist to find it again?
Really, though, I think that the whole canonization thing went completely off the rails a good millennium or two ago.

I’m going with Saint Christopher, my namesake, however dubious the story is.

submariner's avatar

Hmm. Tough one.

The Irish have some great saints. I like St. Columba for his defense of satirists. St. Brendan may have made it to America before Leif Eriksson did (or so the story goes).

St. Denis has a good story. When the barbarians cut off his head, he picked it up and walked home with it. On top of that, he’s the patron saint of Paris. Way cool.

Some of the ones I like best have not been officially canonized: Erasmus, Dorothy Day, and Pope John XXIII.

St. Sebastian (patron saint of diseases) has been a favorite since I started working in AIDS.
St. Gerard (all of us cousins had St. Gerard medals slapped around our necks when we were kids. He is the patron saint of motherhood—as if a medal could make up for mothering).
St. Joan of Arc (come on, a woman in armor is awesome).
