her wisdom, has given us Patron Saints as intecessors - for regions, countries
and states; for occupations, vocations and hobbies; and for special
needs and medical conditions.
The Catholic Forum has gathered together a fantastic collection of Patron Saints. Profiles have portraits, biographical information, areas of patronage, prayers, links to related sites, readings, etc. They can all be found from the links below.
We have also included some
prayers for special needs and this group will be added to over time:
Prayer in times of danger
O God, Who knows us to be set in the midst of such great perils, that, by reason of the weakness of our nature, we cannot stand upright, grant us such health of mind and body, that those evils which we suffer for our sins we may overcome through Your assistance. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayers for Protection
Visit our homes, we beg you, Lord, and banish from them the deadly power of the evil one. May your holy angels dwell in them to keep us in peace, and may your blessing be always upon us. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. (from the Church's night prayer)
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
In the Name of Jesus, I take authority and I bind all powers and forces in the air, in the ground, in the water, in the underground, in nature and in fire. You are the Lord over the entire universe and I give you the Glory for your creation. In your name I bind all demonic forces that have come against us and our families and I seal all of us in the protection of Your Precious Blood that was shed for us on the cross. Mary, our Mother, we seek your protection and intercession with the Sacred Heart of Jesus for us and our families, and surround us with your mantle of love to discourage the enemy. St. Michael and our Guardian Angels come defend us and our families in battle against all the evil ones that roam the earth. In the Name of Jesus, I bind and command all the powers and forces of evil to depart right now away from us, our homes and our lands. And we thank you Lord Jesus for You are a faithful and compassionate God. Amen.
