Book Review: Patron Saints

I recently had the opportunity to read Thomas J. Craughwell's Patron Saints.  This book is a collection of patron saints for a variety of situations, family members and so on.  The book is divided into eleven chapters so you can easily pinpoint the type of patron saint for the situation at hand.

I enjoyed the easy to use format of this book.  Each saint falls under a subtitle within the chapters so finding a patron saint for say a teenager is a snap.  For each saint highlighted in this book you will get a short explanation of why he or she is the patron saint for that cause and when his or her feast day falls on the calendar.

Overall I found the book to be both informative and amusing.  The book is certainly light reading and one could either read it cover to cover or use the index or table of contents to find specific saints.  It's sort of a fun reference book.

This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company.  Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Patron Saints.  They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church or a Catholic Bible.
