Does your occupation have a patron saint? Who is it?
Or do you have a favorite patron saint?
For my profession: St. Christina the Astonishing. My personal favorite is Francis.
As a writer I believe St. Vincent de Paul comes to the rescue.
As a chicken care taker I ask for St. Francis of Assisi's intersession.
When I lay down tiles St. Joseph gives a hand.
And I forget so many things between jobs that St. Anthony works hand-in-hand with me to see if I learn to depend on God for the little things, so that when the big things disappear I have already developed a relationship with God's people.
I'm never alone when I work!
Hmm... I'm not sure. Then again my job is a bit confusing, so I'm not even really sure what I would say my profession is. I work in development and fundraising for a non-profit, serving as manager of one of our thrift stores. Although my long term intended career is in social services/social work so I guess my patron can be Louise de Marilliac who I'll admit I had never even heard of until I googled "Patron saint of social workers."
The patron saint of my life would probably be St. Anthony because I am constantly losing things! I'm pretty sure if I asked for ihs intercession any more than I do now people would start to think I was sacreligious!
