Friends and neighbors,

This just occurred to me as I was getting ready to go to bed for the night.

Especially in these trouble economic times, do we know of any Saint or Blessed or Venerable who has helped souls to get out of huge amounts of debt? If there is such a "patron saint" of debt owners, have there been any successful stories of their intercession?

Thank you in advance to anyone with such information.

Several responses with  Huh?, hehe.  The interesting question intrigured me to run a google, with some different results, and here they are:

http://saints.sqpn.com/patrons-for-good-finances Infant Jesus of Prague

St. Matthew was listed by several sites, not only at the patron saint of tax collectors, bankers and accountants, but also as a patron saint for financial matters.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/religion/4389300/Workers-worried-in-recession-should-pray-to-patron-saint-of-bankers-says-Catholic-church.html

Saint Expeditus, Patron Saint of Procrastination and Money Issues, is one I had not been familiar with
http://catholic-saints.suite101.com/article.cfm/saint_expeditus

Several of the sites also recommended St. Jude, as the patron saint for difficult situations, and St. Joseph, as the patron saint for workers and employment issues.

Whoever it is, they might as well be the Patron saint of America at the same time.  Not to mention the UK as we are both in debt to our eyeballs.

St. Dephalt perhaps

I promise not to put anything here which might help us question our mind-forged manacles, inspire us, or help us in any way at all.

N.B.: I will not be posting on this site again until the Christmas octave. Have a good Advent.
