Who is the patron saint of healing?

Full Question

Who is the patron saint of healing? My son-in-law would like to choose that saint’s name for his confirmation name.


The possibilities are endless, as there are saints to pray to for just about every ache and pain known to man. If your son is looking for a saint with a special interest in praying for those involved in the healing sciences, there are several choices: Luke (patron of physicians), Camillus de Lellis (patron of nurses), and Raphael the archangel (whose name means “God has healed”).
