Household Saints Kit

There really are people who will answer all your prayers. For only $17.95, you can have your very own Household Saints Kit from Barnes & Noble. Please order now. The patron saints are standing by.

This charming yet practical kit contains everything you need to invoke the protection and guidance of the patron saints who look after us and our homes. Lost your car keys? Say a prayer to St. Anthony of Padua. Trying to sell your corner-lot Victorian? Clasp your hands ad beseech St. Joseph for help. Having trouble with the reception on your television? St. Clare of Assisi is waiting in the wings to give you and your satellite dish a holy, helping hand.
With due respect to my Catholic friends, what happened to the idea that there is one mediator between God and man? I know these men were very good and even holy when compared to other men. But the problem is that they are compared to other men. They were sinners just like me.
I don't know who to ask, but I would guess that many who believe in the intercession of the saints would find this offensive.
