A saint for pretty much anything

Catholics know this: there is a saint for everything. For instance, St. Anthony is the patron of seekers of lost things. Misplaced your cellphone in the mess on your desk? A quick prayer to St. Anthony and you're guaranteed to find it!
Lots of people have a token with the likeness of St. Christopher, the protector of travelers, in their car. When we bought a car, we got one from klik's parents. It lies in the space under the car stereo.

So, why not entrust the precious data on your USB memory stick to the Virgin Mary?
I quite like how the likeness of the saint is the thing that needs to be protected. That must count for double points!
