prayer to a saint

Question from Linda on 12/14/2007:

My husband has never been sick other than a common cold. He has just been diagnosed with sugar diabetes, they put him on insulin to bring it down. We except whatever God sends him, we pray to God and the Virgen Mary to help us with his will. We were wondering is there a certain saint for diabetics we could pray to? Thank you for your time and help.

Answer by David Gregson on 1/21/2008:

I don't know a Saint formally identified as a patron of diabetics, but Mother Pauline of the Agonizing Heart of Jesus (Paulina Do Coração Agonizante De Jesus) died of diabetes. So we may suppose she is sympathetic to those who suffer from that affliction. She was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002.
