I'm your sweet Angel Heart. I offer you my heart's devotion and I bring you good tidings of great joy with my doggie caroling. I guard you like an angel. But every time a bell rings, I don't get wings; I just salivate.

Dear Lord, please send your angel to protect my humans while they're away. I don't know where they go every day, but I miss them and I worry. Keep them safe and bring them home again soon. I can't work the can opener myself.
There are several spellings to this saint's name; but he is the Patron of dogs and of people who are falsely accused. When he fell ill, he was sustained by his dog who brought him food. That's a miracle. What dog wouldn't eat it himself?
