What is a Saint?

A Patron Saint has special affinity for a trade or group in several forms of the Catholic Church. For example, Saint Florian is the Patron Saint of Firefighters, and Saint Christopher is the Patron Saint of Travellers. Patron Saints can also be associated with geographical areas (depending on where they were born or where they preached). For example, not only is Saint Joseph the Patron Saint of Fathers, he is also the Patron Saint of Belgium. Saint Patrick is Patron Saint of Ireland as well as the Patron Saint of protection from snakes. Saint Anthony is considered the Father of All Monks but is also the patron saint of Lisbon. Oftentimes, certain Patron Saints may have only a nominal relationship with the trade or group that they represent, as is the case with Saint George of England.
