Publishers Description
Dear St. Antony
Come around
Something's lost and can't be found
It's three A.M. and you're wide awake. Worrying. You may seek solace in snacking, or in a late-night call to your best friend. The problem is, even your closest friends need to sleep, and, let's face it, the snacking only adds to the worries.
Where's a worrier to turn? To the patron saints, that's who. According to centuries-old tradition, a host of heavenly helpers is standing by, ready and eager to take a personal interest in "you."Heaven Help Us shows you how to take your petitions straight to the top--to the martyrs and holy men and women who can intercede according to their particular areas of expertise:
--Is true love eluding you? Light a candle to St. Anne on a Tuesday night
--Are you suffering from a sore throat? Bake bread for St. Blaise
--Is your wallet feeling light? Donate coins to St. Expiditus
Categorized by anxiety for easy reference, and filled with lively biographies of dozens of saints as well as step-by-step instructions for performing the long-established rituals to enlist their aid, Heaven Help Us has the remedies to cure all your modern-day woes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A fun, fun read!  Jan 14, 2008
Not being Catholic, I cannot vouch in any way for the accuracy of this book, however, once I began reading it I could not put it down! The La Plante sisters took subject matter that could have been dry and boring and presented it in a fascinating and light manner. Their clever wit and light hearted approach had me laughing out loud at times. The information in the back regarding Catholic prayers and practices was particularly interesting to me-a non-Catholic. The authors acknowledge from the beginning of the book that some of the traditions and rituals go back centuries, and do border on magic and paganism, contributing to the division btwn Protestantism and Catholicism. Take it for what it's worth. Approach with an open mind and you will definitely enjoy it.
Spiritual and Fun  Sep 16, 2005
This book is a fun way to learn about saints through the eyes of interesting people that in one way or another may relate to anyone who has ever been a part of catholisism. It is also a great guide to people interested in learning about saints in a special way. The only setback for me was that it did not include as many saints as I hoped it would.
TOO CUTE  Aug 29, 2005
While there are a few - one glaring - inaccuracies in this book, I found it utterly adorable. I will treasure it always and read it until the pages disintagrate. It is very reader friendly and obviously written with a very loving spirit. God bless the writers.

With regards to St. Christopher - they repeatedly state he was declared persona-non-grata. This is not the case. Vatican II in 1969 revised the Roman Calendar. That's all. They needed to omit a few "celebrations." In our faith, Solemnities take priority over Feasts. Feasts take priority over Memorials. The Memorial to St. Christopher entered the Roman Calendar in 1550. So the Memorial was removed from the calendar. NOT the Saint from Sainthood. St. Christopher is, was and always will be - a Saint.

Mary Magdalen was not a prostitute. Nor was she the Mary that was the sister of Martha and Lazarus. There were a number of Mary's that followed Jesus. The Eastern Church has a rich history of Mary Magdalen. All the Bible says about her was that Jesus cast 7 demons out of her and that she supported him in his ministry with her wealth.

Joan of Arc's armor wasn't white in color. White armor means unadorned.

Most importantly - Saul (later Paul) was NOT a pagan. He was a Jew. A member of the Sanhedrin sent out to persecute the new faith. He had a major conversion.

I hope the sisters do a second book.
Very disappointing  Aug 29, 2001
This book pokes fun at praying to saints by adding silly rituals that are mostly superstitious. Pulling a lock of hair from someone's head and putting it under your pillow? THAT is supposed to make the person fall in love with you? Not. This book could send a gullible person on a wild goose chase to achieve something that could be achieved by praying to the right saint for the right purpose. It's a mockery. Perhaps just meant to be "for fun." I felt ripped off.
This Is A Cute Book  Jun 26, 2001
This book comes with books of Saints lives and how to pray for thier assistance. There are some of the things I disagree with and some that I find is okay to do. Otherwise, I enjoy learning about thier lives because they all show their great examples of being a TRUE Servant of God. :)
