Saints Of All Cultures

By Eilis Flynn

March may be best-known for St. Patrick and his special day and February for St. Valentine and his special day, but there are so many more saints, and not necessarily of the Christian variety. A glance of any list of saints, Christian and otherwise, may give you pause – and who knows? Doing so may even inspire your writing. 

Here’s a database of Catholic saints, which of course includes patron saints, saints’ fun facts, popular saints, and (nummy!) feast days:

Saints aren’t limited to the Catholic variety. For instance, the Buddhists have their own saints – not quite the same as the ones you may be used to, but they are miracle workers and holy persons equally devoted to their faiths. How are they recognized, you may wonder. You can find out here:

According to Wikipedia, “A saint is a holy person. The term comes from the New Testament, where it is used to refer to all Christian believers. Over the years the term has grown to be used and accepted in other Christian, religious, and even secular contexts, to refer to those who are considered to be exceptionally virtuous or glorified in heaven. Hence, a ‘saint’ (cont. with sinner) is a (usually deceased) person whose life is regarded by a community as a good example, and their life story is remembered for sake of inspiring others.”

Variations of saints may be found in Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox, Protestantism, Anglicanism, Latter-day Saints, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Santeria. Find out more at:
