The Patron Saint of Jobs

Lake Effect News, a wonderful blog that covers the North Side of Chicago, has an interesting post about Saint Cajetan, the patron of those seeking jobs.  Cajetan was a priest who lived in Italy during the 16th century.  His mission was to help the poor and mentally ill.  He even founded a bank that was an alternative to lending practices based on usury (You know, like credit card interest rates).  A local church in Edgewater will hold prayer services asking this saint for his intercession.  Is prayer the answer?  For many, it is.  What can it hurt?  We all need to hold to our faith, especially in hard times.
