According to wikipedia,
"civil defense volunteers, unofficial patron of stress relief and New Year Blues"
"Faith is like a dark tunnel: God gives us the Light to take one step at a time. The Light is not given to see the end of the tunnel."

Fr. Walter Ciszek (1904-1984)

I think he is also patron saint of the ill and injured.
but grace can still be found within the gale,
with fear and reverence raise your ragged sail.
