Your Saint for 2010 ~ An inspiring companion!

1:55 PM

Where I prayerfully ask God to guide my hand in choosing for you a Saint Companion to guide your 2010....

Time to pick a new saint to guide each of us this year, as we have done in years before. Did you get a saint last year? Blog about it...encourage this tradition.

It is said that the Saint picks YOU.

In our family, we post our Saints of the Year on our refrigerator so that we are constantly reminded of them... of our journey with them... to be inspired by what their life can teach us in our faith journey.

With solemnity, we each fervently pray as our hand reaches into the basket. We ask that the saint God intends to "teach and journey " with us this year will choose us.

And they have been so meaningful to us. Sometimes a certain saint likes to stay and share themselves with other members of our family....like Padre Pio, St. Therese's family and Mother Cabrini. We are growing in love for our saints. Some might say we are Saint Junkies!

Would you like to have a companion saint this year? CAN I PICK A SAINT FOR YOU?



Leave me a comment and I will leave you one back with a Saint Companion for 2010. Then, google them...read all you can about them. Get a medal and post their prayer card on your mirror...learn from them and their struggles. Make it a New Year's resolution to let them transform you in some way! All you holy men and women, ora pro nobis.

There is also this ministry as well, http://yourpatronsaint.blogspot.com/ This blogger writes so beautifully about this tradition and it's effects.

Sarah said...

Happy New Year!

I think this is how I "met" you in 2009, when I asked you for a patron saint for the year. Saints Dismas and Veronica chose me ...

Please pray for a new saint to pick me for 2010. We have A LOT going on already—moving in Feb., renting a temporary home while our new home is being built, etc. We will need all the prayers we can get during this process =)

Thank you, and God bless you and your family in the new year!

Connie said...

Hi Allison,

The Mesco's would love for you to pick a patron saint for 2010.

Happy New Year!

God bless you. :)

abld said...

Yes, please choose one for me and one for the Drew family. We have started off the new year rather dismally with my husband puncturing his foot while putting together the new big boy beds. We can use all the help we can get.

Thank you so much! I regretted into the year last year that I had not requested you choose a saint for us. I am not wasting time this year. :)

We will appreciate it so much and pray for you.

There is a similar tradition in traditional Carmels. On or around 25 December, you draw a patron saint for the year. Then, on or around the 1st of each month, you draw a saint whose feast day is that month, a virtue to practice in a special way, and 3 mortifications to offer for the conversion of souls (ie, a Pater Noster with arms outstretched). I love this tradition. Also, the names of the priests of the diocese are drawn so that each sister prays in a special way for that priest(s) during the year. If more people prayed for priests and seminarians, what a revolution would that bring about!

Please draw a saint for me.

Sarah - Kala said...

I have a Saint for me, but I'd love one for our family. Merci beaucoup!

This is a beautiful tradition I would love to start in my family - ds and dd agree! We would be blessed to have saints pick us.
Heather (me)
DS (8 - recently diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum and has a host of allergies & asthma)
DD (6 - currently loud and outspoken, working on a more gentle spirit)

Also, while I don't think he'll actively participate, the children's father (firefighter/paramedic) could always use additional guidance and support. We'd love to have a saint pick him, knowing that the friendship may be one-sided, at least at the beginning.

Thank you so much!
Peace,
Heather
