I don’t understand why saints have specific purposes. Wouldn’t it suffice to pray for the intercessions of the saint of the day or all of the saints rather than look up some saint that is somehow related to whatever one wants to pray for? Couldn’t I just pray to St Zita to help relieve a sore throat and St Blaise to help find my keys?
If I have to pray to a specific saint for something, how often does one pray to St Joan of Arc for the liberation of France, for instance? I don’t mean to not sound serious, but it seems like some saints would just not be getting many prayers.
