Overview

Once Again, Michael O'Neill McGrath's images of saints as patrons of occupations remind us that we are called to build God's reign through our labor. From the first-century Martha, who served meals to Jesus in her home, to the recently canonized Katharine Drexel, who built schools and colleges to improve the lives of Native Americans and African Americans, work and labor have been essential to the Christian life. As in the first volume of the Patrons and Protectors series, McGrath's art delights and instructs. Who is that road construction worker, and why is there a sheep on the highway? Which saint is patron of cabdrivers? Why is there an ostrich in a scientist's lab? Alongside McGrath's commentary about why a saint is associated with a particular occupation are essays by men and women engaged in that work. As we see the variety of ways human beings contribute their talents and skills, we may be inspired to view our jobs with fresh eyes. We may even be challenged to look for the Holy Spirit hovering or nestling in our offices or workplaces. In his foreword to this book, James Martin, SJ, reminds us that we are all called to be co-creators with God. How blessed we are to have the companionship of the holy men and women who have gone before us!
