7. The Saint of your first confession
He or she probably helped you make a good first confession. And this Saint can continue to be a special helper in receiving God’s mercy.
8. The Saint of your first communion
This Saint rejoiced to see you receive the greatest gift: Christ Himself. Just like parents and sponsors celebrate their children’s first communion, so do the Saints who watch as their spiritual children receive the Eucharist on their feast day. A good person to pray with before receiving communion, or at Adoration.
9. A Saint of your career in general
If you’re a writer, St. Francis de Sales should be someone you pray with. Good ol’ St. Florian for the firefighters, and St. Matthew if you’re an accountant. As many of us struggle with keeping work in its proper place—not too much, not too little—the patron Saint of our work can be a big help.st john baptist
