Patron Saint of Sick Children
Question from Alice on 12/3/2009:

Hello, I apologize if I have the wrong forum. I have non-Catholic friends whose 12 month old son is dying of cancer. They have been told that he has 6 months to a year left. Is there a patron saint of sick children that it would be appropriate to ask for a miracle from? I am not sure if the baby has been baptized.

Answer by Matthew Bunson on 12/12/2009:

First, be assured of my prayers and those of the readers of this forum.

As for patron saints, there are several to consider: For Cancer, there is St. Peregrine and for the Sick, St. Camillus and Saint Michael the Archangel. The patron saint of children is St. Nicholas, a fitting saint for this blessed season.

Readers are encouraged to suggest their own patrons.
