[quote]St. Margaret of Scotland is considered the patron saint of fashion because of her role in shaping Scotland's fashion during her 11th century reign. She believed that clothing her people in beautiful fabrics and colors with ornamental details would make them feel like a new race, distinct from other countries. To achieve this, she employed foreign merchants to bring her new fashions and fabrics from around the world, and also encouraged her people to learn how to weave with better materials.

I always liked the prayer to St. Michael. Let's see if I can remember it (I wasn't a Catholic for very long).

St. Michael the Archangel, protect us in battle. Lead us from the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. [bold]Ooops! Going to have to cheat.[/bold]

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,

and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts,

by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,

and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

I always liked the vision of evil spirits prowling about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Yee-ha!

[quote]Bartenders – St. Amand of Maastricht

[quote]St. Amand was bishop of Maastricht (modern-day Belgium) but felt called to carry the Gospel to the regions of France and Germany where it was unknown. By chance, those regions, as we know, became prime producers of beer and wine. Tavern keepers (aka bartenders) then took St. Amand as their patron because of his dedication to the faith in those regions.

R45 He was working but not getting much work in Detroit. He prayed to St Jude and promised to build a shrine to him, got work, and moved to Chicago. He prayed some more, got more work, went to Hollywood for "Make Room for Daddy" and when the money started rolling in, remembered his promise and built St Jude's Hospital with the seed money coming from Arab-Americans and Thomas' performances. St Jude's, btw, was the first integrated hospital in the South. In 1962.

He believed that nature itself was the mirror of God. He called all creatures his "brothers" and "sisters", and even preached to the birds and supposedly persuaded a wolf in Gubbio to stop attacking some locals if they agreed to feed the wolf. His deep sense of brotherhood under God embraced others, and he declared that "he considered himself no friend of Christ if he did not cherish those for whom Christ died”

Saint Agatha of Sicily has a great story. She was tortured by pagans, including having her breasts torn off, to get her to renounce her Christianity. She never gave in, and became a martyr/saint. Today, when her feast day is celebrated in Catania, one of the local delicacies is a pastry (Minne di Sant’Agata) shaped to resemble her sliced off breasts. lol. No shit.

When I visited Paris for the first time, one of the things I wanted to explore was the legend of St. Denis. I'd imagined him walking down from Montmartre many times, carrying his severed head.

My favorite painting of a saint is in the Andre Meyer Gallery at the Metropolitan in New York. St. Joan is depicted at the time of her calling, and the shades of Sts. Michael, Margaret, and Catherine appear faintly in the background. As Joan gazes into the distance, the sacrifices of pain, sorrow, and the bravery of her vocation are clear in the artist's depiction of the voices. The work has inspired me to take the time to listen to my conscience many times.
