Thanksgiving is an opportunity to gather with family and friends to remember all that there is to be thankful for. It is also an opportunity to break bread over a home cooked meal. Unfortunately, sometimes the execution of said home cooked meal can be rather difficult. Between overcooked turkey, soggy stuffing, stale rolls and third degree burns it can feel like more trouble than it’s worth.
Fortunately, Loyola Press has assembled a list of saints with culinary patronages with enough holy men and women to help you get through any dinner disasters. There’s Saint Elizabeth of Hungary the patron of bakers, Saint Lawrence the patron of cooks and Saint Drogo the patron saint of coffee.
Also in a worst case scenario there’s always Saint Jude, patron of lost causes.
