Default Saint for money problems?

I've tried to research who would be a good saint to pray to for money problems ... the only thing I've come up with is the Infant Jesus of Prague. Any suggestions?

St. Jude is the patron saint for those in need. Financial, health or employment. You can pray the novena to St. Jude. This site may come in useful.

St. Nicholas is a patron of those in financial need. He threw bags of money through a window for three girls who needed dowries, if I recall the story correctly. His feast day is December 6.

St Philomena is known to be especially powerful in many "hopeless or impossible" cases, including money problems. Her feast day is August 11, and the invocation is St Philomena, powerful with God, pray for us!

Patrons against poverty include St Anne, mother of the Blessed Virgin, and St Bernadette of Lourdes, whose family was very poor.

St Rita and St Anthony of Padua are two other saints often invoked in difficult or impossible cases. St Anthony especially in financial need. In fact many churches have a special collections box dedicated to providing for the needs of the poor which is called 'St Anthony's bread'.

Saint Matthew (one of the twelve apostles) is the patron saint of accountants (he was a tax collector). He should know all about handling money.

Mother Angelica mentioned "Our Lady of Good Remedy" on her show once. I appeal to her often when I get nervous or scared.

I will pray for you. Don't worry. Trust in God and offer this up to Him. I know It's difficult, but never forget these moments have infinite value especially when endured patiently.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

My mother says that St. Pancratius is the saint for money issues. Here is a novena in his honor. http://www.catholicdoors.com/prayers...sh4/p02816.htm
