Many thousands of saints are recognized the world over. But what is a saint? Well, a saint represents holiness and is a person who we can follow with confidence or learn from.
They are regarded as of Christian faith and being in heaven after death. In life, they were known for their kindness and patience.
You may or may not be aware that each occupation also had its patron saint. These range from bakers, butchers, cobblers, and even nurses.
Here, I have also added information as to the saints that your ancestors may have worshiped within their trade.
Check out the guide at Catholic.org – Saints A to Z that includes nearly 900 saints.
