Patron Saints For 2009...

2008 is drawing to a close, which means that it's time to find out who your Patron Saint for 2009 will be.  There's something rather appealing about the idea of getting a saint assigned to you by someone else, because it feels as if the saint is actually choosing you !

My patron this year was St. Peter Chrysologus.  I can't wait to find out who I get next year!

Angela Messenger is kindly undertaking this mammoth task... only, precisely because it is such a mammoth task, she is imposing a closing date, which is December 1st 2008.  By my reckoning, that leaves two weeks to put in a request.

Good luck.

Mantilla-twitch to Adrienne, who reminded me about the assignment of Patron Saints!

We’d just like to let you know about two new posts on our blog. The first is a report of a Mass in the Traditional Latin/Gregorian Rite in Co. Laois, Ireland.

The second post is a report of news, just received, of a weekly Mass in Co. Meath, Ireland.

I hope that you’ll be able to feature both reports. Feel free to lift photos.

God bless you!

I think your Patron Saint idea is great! May I use it also for my newsletter and blog? Where do you get your saints? And may I link to your blog--actually, I kinda think I did, already. Sorry, presumptious of me.
May I have a saint also? I'm kind of tired of praying for my husband. I'd like a saint to take over that job. He's a good man but a non practicing Catholic. Maybe he's just lazy. I really think he needs a Saul to Paul experience. Saul was a good guy, too. Paul was more perfect. Oh get the idea.
Happy Feast of Christ the King.

It certainly is a great idea... unfortunately, not one to which I can lay claim!! Click on the links in the post, leave a message, and Angela will find you a saint... but hurry, she's stopping after December 1st.
