St. Joseph

St. Joseph, the dear, quiet man who was chosen to be Mary's husband and a father to Our Lord. He is the patron saint against doubt, cabinetmakers, Canada, carpenters, China, confectioners, craftsmen, dying people, engineers, families, fathers, house hunters, Korea, laborers, Mexico, Peru, Vietnam and pioneers.  He is the patron of the universal Church.

Lovely art, Dymphna! Thank you!
I have gotten into the habit of asking St. Joseph's help with my carpentry projects.
I often think he would go bananas and have a great time with modern precision power tools.
And who's to say he doesn't have them in Heaven?

So you need a patron saint against Canada?

Perhaps you meant "against doubt" but FOR all the rest?
