More About The Fourteen Holy Helpers

The Fourteen Holy Helpers were a group of saints invoked with great fervor during the Black Death in Europe from 1346 to 1349.

These great saints individually were patrons and patronesses of various maladies, and each had developed a large and devoted following over the centuries. It was understandable, then, during the Plague that the faithful turned to their intercession before the throne of God.

While this feast was removed from the Roman calendar in 1969, the fourteen holy helpers remain saints of the Church, even if for some the historical evidence of their lives is scant.
