Hagiographical News

Since we were talking about all the apparently disconnected and inexplicable things and places that certain saints are patrons of, for, or against, it seems fitting to mention today’s two honored apostles: Peter and Paul.

Saint Paul’s patronage extends from authors to journalists to writers. Or put another way, from hailstorms to hospital public relations to poisonous snakes to rope braiders.

The patronage of Saint Peter ranges from bridge builders to foot problems to longevity to Worms, Germany.

I love the details about Peter and Paul. It's amazing how much we are influenced by Christianity, even when we don't know it!
