Unemployed due to Coronavirus? There's a saint for that...
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, millions of people have filed for unemployment.
As with most things, the Catholic Church has a saint for these times. St. Cajetan, the patron saint for the unemployed, knew something of poverty and pestilence.

Glorious Saint Cajetan, acclaimed by all people to be the father of providence because you provide miraculous aid to all in need, I stand here before you today, asking that you present to the Lord our God the requests that I confidently deposit in your hands today. May these graces that I now request help me to always seek the Kingdom of God and his Righteousness, knowing that God — who dresses with beauty the flowers of the field and abundantly feeds the birds of the sky — will give me all other things. Amen.

"Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
