Patrons and Protectors: Occupations - Saints are not relics from our ecclesial past. Their lives cans spark our own, lifting us up as we strive to be faithful Christians. The women and men the church recognizes as saints had to make choices about their occupations and their ways of life. When and where they lived shaped these decisions, but how the saints lived out their decisions goes beyond time and place. Michael O'Neill McGrath, OSFS, creates images of the saints as patrons of particular occupations. These pictures of our holy heroes, along with the artist's commentary about them, tell us why a particular saint is associated with a particular occupation. For some, like Saint Peter, it is the work they actually did: fishing. For others, like Saint Therese of Lisieux, patron of airplane pilots, the connection is more poetic, derived from the spirit of the saint and of the work. Essays by contemporary men and women, some well-known, others less so, tell us what the work is like for them today. Whether we want to explore career possibilities for ourselves or enjoy learning about our patron saint's life, this book helps us see that there are many ways to contribute to the building of God's reign here on earth.

St. Francis in San Francisco - What if everyone's favorite saint were to step out of the world of history and legend, break free from his statue-like pose at the edge of the birdbath, and visit modern-day San Francisco?

When St. Francis comes to visit, there to greet him are Johnny and his dog, Sunpatch, who become the saint's personal tour guides through the city named after him. St. Francis blesses the animals of Golden Gate Park, visits landmarks, and even rides the famous cable cars.
