      If you know of Saint Wilgefortis, you probably have an uncommonly large knowledge of hagiographies - the biographies of saints. This particular saint gives some interesting but amusing insight into how gendered cultural signifiers have caused confusion. I should say, Uncumber was her English name, while also being known as Wilgefortis, and various other names such as Ontkommer in Dutch,. The Patron Saint of Liars is a story about a young woman who leaves her life to head to St. Elizabeth's, a home for unwed mothers on the other side of the country. The story is told in three parts, in chronological order: first by Rose, the young woman, then by Son, the groundskeeper at St. Elizabeth's, and finally, by Rose's daughter, Cecilia/5.

      St. Anthony of Padua is best known for being a friend of the baby Jesus and for helping people find lost objects. However, he is also the patron saint of barren women, and for that reason, is an important saint to pray to when struggling to conceive a baby. Another says that young women should note the location of barking dogs on Saint Andrew’s Eve: their future husbands will come from that direction. On the day after Andrew’s feast, young people float cups in a tub; if a boy ‘s and a girl ‘s cup drift together and are intercepted by a cup inscribed “priest”, it indicates marriage.

        November 25th is Saint Catherine's Day. Catherine is the patron saint of unmarried women, potters, lace-makers, dressmakers and milliners. Saint Catherine was the daughter of Konstas, ruler of Alexandria, and lived during the 4th century CE. She is remembered as beautiful and well-educated in poetry, philosophy and me. St. Elizabeth is the first saint to be born in the United States. She was raised in the Episcopal church, married a wealthy businessman and had five children. Sadly, her husband’s business went.
