Saints for Healing and Comfort

Hey! Guys! Do you pray for help from your saints? Or, you pray directly to God. I believed Saints but I don't worship them. Saints serves both as inspirations and intercessors. From their lives -they live until their deaths- they serve as an example of what was devout and holy life can be. They were called martyrs. Who serve their whole lives to the people who were in needs of spiritual help. Many believed that if we pray for their help- our prayers will be granted. So, ill share with you what i read in a christian site. Its all about Saints who can help us for healing and comfort.

Here's 7 Saints for healing and comfort:

1. St. Anne (First Century) - Shes the mother of Mary and Grandmother of Jesus. Christians believed that her prayers must have a great influence in heaven.
2. St. Juliana Falconieri (1270-1341)- St. Juliana became the patron of people suffering from any type of chronic illnesses.
3. St. Agatha (About 250)- Because of the mutilation endured during her martyrdom, she has always been the patron of women suffering from any type of breast ailment. In recent years, she has been invoked especially against breast cancer.
