I'm curious if a source can be cited for the list of whom St. Paul is considered an intercessor for? — FrJohn (talk) 11:28, October 16, 2006 (CDT)

This Catholic site mentions that St. Paul is patron of/against (under 'Patronage'):
"against snakes; authors; Bath Abbey; Bath, England; Catholic Action; Cursillo movement; diocese of Birmingham, Alabama; diocese of Calbayog, Philippines; diocese of Covington, Kentucky; evangelists; hailstorms; hospital public relations; journalists; Kavala, Greece; diocese of Las Vegas, Nevada; lay people; Malta; diocese of Maralal, Kenya; missionary bishops; Münster, Germany; musicians; Naumburg, Germany; newspaper editorial staff; archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; poisonous snakes; Poznan Poland; diocese of Providence, Rhode Island; public relations personnel; public relations work; publishers; reporters; Rome; rope braiders; rope makers; saddlemakers; saddlers; snake bites; tent makers; Umbria, Italy; diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts; writers"
St. Paul is also considered patron of distance education (today this usually takes the form of e-/m-learning and technology enhanced learning). As this site states, "Distance education is not a new idea, and can be traced as far back as the first century. The Apostle Paul wrote to the early Christian churches, instructing them from a distance (even when he was under 'house arrest' in Rome). This was probably the first type of 'correspondence course', which was the only method of learning at a distance until the advent of the telephone."
