As we all know, saints have patience that is virtually inexhaustible, so why not ask them to help you out? "A Little Book of Saints" has 100 of them on call, and between them they can deal with pretty much any situation. Divided into seven life areas so that you can browse through and look for the saint most likely to help, it also has an emergency section, where the saints are indexed by name and by occasion. Best of all, there is a weblink to a free microsite, from where you can download saintly icons for your mobile or computer, so that help and inspiration will always be at hand.
