First take a look at what a "saint" is in the Catholic Church.Saints in the Catholic Church are all those who are baptized. Butmore specifically, the Catholic Church recognize…s by canonization,people whose lives were, after much research and discovery,conclusive of them absolutely being in Heaven. When someone dies,we do not know for sure if they are in Heaven or not, as God is theonly one who can read our hearts. He is the final judge on that.But, there are some people who lived holy lives who have died, andthrough prayer to them asking for their prayers to God for us,miracles have occurred. Catholics believe that if a miracle hasoccurred through the intercession of a particular dead person thenit could have only happened through them if that person were WITHGOD, meaning absolutely in Heaven. . Now we can take a look at what a "patron saint" is. A Patron Saintis someone who did some great religious things when theywere alive and when they were dead they were put up on a pedestalfor being a great person. a canonized saint in theCatholic Church who based on their life experiences (i.e. was ateacher, writer, etc) is classified under that experience for ushere to ask for their intercessions. For example, St. Elizabeth AnnSeton is the patron saint of Catholic Schools. Why? Because she wasthe person who opened the first Catholic school here in America.Catholic School teachers, principals and students can say a prayerto her, asking for her to pray for them to God for their intentions(i.e. we need more money to replace the windows in the school,etc.) St. Peregrine is the patron saint of cancer, so peopleaffected by cancer can ask St. peregrine to intercede forthem.. Saying that we put people on pedestals for being great people iswrong. The pedestal is the last place these saints would want tobe.. Answer Catholic definition: "Patron saints are chosen as specialprotectors or guardians over areas of life." Answer Catholicsbelieve that the saints are before the throne of God and He lovesthe prayers of His Saints, and these include those in Heaven andthose on earth. It is biblical to believe in the Communion ofSaints and to ask that through the merits of Our Lord, that we prayfor one another, in Heaven as well as on earth. Too often there arethose who would script the power of the living God, in this casethat being the efficacious prayers of the saints about us and thosein Heaven. That being said, St. Joseph, the husband of the BlessedVirgin Mary, is especially honored because he is the patron offamilies. Ask him to pray for an adoption and that all would gowell.. Looks as if you copied and pasted this?? What is the source?.

I would go with Saints Zenaida and Philonella, the first unmercenary physicians. They founded a healing spa before 100 AD and this is what wikipedia says, in part: Saints Ze…naida ( Zenaida of Tarsus ) and Philonella (d. circa 100) were traditionally the first Christian physicians after Luke the Evangelist, and the first "unmercenaries" (physicians who would not accept fees from their patients).  They are particularly venerated in Eastern Christianity The sisters set themselves in opposition to the prevailing custom. On locating a cave with a mineral spring, they set up a chapel and cells for themselves, and opened a clinic where they treated all who came to them regardless of their ability to pay.
