Your 2013 Saint Companion & Giveaway!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!  

It's that time again... I will prayerfully ask God to guide my hand in choosing your Saint Companion to guide your 2013....AND you can also enter to win the Catholic Child's Teaching Bible and supplies.

FOR OUR 9th YEAR....it is 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. It becomes a great learning and spiritual study to google our saint and learn and read as much as we can about them.

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 2013. 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.


(This project becomes larger each year, thank you, Lord!  Please be patient with me as I gladly respond to requests as promptly as I can.)

+ S P E C I A L   A D D E D    F E A T U R E   T H I S   Y E A R +

To thank you for visiting, I'd like to gift one of the responders/commenters of this post with The Catholic Child's Teaching Bible. My friend, Jenny, worked hard to make this wonderful resource and I would like to make a gift of it. See video HERE.  

You came to this blog post in a quest for spiritual companionship, finding a saint to help guide your year of faith. I believe this giveaway dovetails nicely because with this resource your family can also meet that calling to grow in virtue and closeness to God's Word...the way the Saints did.  This book will encourage you and your family to open your bibles more!  There, in His Word, you will meet Him, like our role models the saints, who now pray before the face of God in heaven.



To enter the GIVEAWAY...follow the instructions at this link, a Rafflecopter giveaway .

Regina M said...

The saint picks you is so true. My daughter is applying to a religious community expecting to be received in June. Her soon-to-be superior picked a saint for her--St. Apollonia who is the patroness of dentists and dental patients. My daughter needs extensive dental work before she can enter. We didn't know the patron saint for dental work before.
I would like a companion saint to journey with me in this year of major changes for our family. Thanks so much for this good work you are doing. May the Lord reward you.

Hello, this is my first time on this site and I'm loving it. We are a homeschooling family and could really use some.saints this year as last year was terrible for us. My grandpa was murdered, we were sick a lot, my grandma has Alzheimer's and we help care for her, and we just put my dog down from having breast cancer tumors rupturing, among many many other things. My family members that would like saints are... Me -Maggie, my husband Monohan, our kids ayden, dinah, allie, and ruby, my sister Veronica, my parents Deborah and Andrew, and my grandma vernice. And if we can enter the bible giveaway that would be great too. My kids take CCD classes and my husband is converting thru the rcia classes. Praise the Lord!!

HI Allison! :)

I just saw your blog post via my RSS feed and it is such a God-cidence that we had just been discussing who should be our family patron saint/saint companion for this year.

Our 6 yr old son, Timothy, suggested St. Pedro Calungsod, as he wants a saint from the Philippines. But I would LOVE to have you pray for one for us as a family and as individuals! :)

Please do include us in your prayer list:
Tina (me), my husband Anthony, Timothy (6 y/o) and Therese (3 y/o) and the little one in my womb :)

I'd love to join the giveaway too, but I don't know if I'm eligible since we're based in the Philippines. :)

Thanks so much! I LOVE your blog — thank you for allowing God to use you in the New Evangelization!

God bless always!

Love from Manila,
Tina of Truly Rich Mom

Happy New year! I left a comment, at least I thought I did but likely it was lost in cyberspace with our slow home connection. Ugh... Allison, would you please pick a saint for me, and one for our school? Sorry I'm late now here. Thank you! xox

Allison said...

My dearest, Renee,my hand was led to St. Thomas More,Jun22 - for courageous faith and praying our lawmakers make it their aim to bring about a culture of Life.

For the homeschool - The Prophet Isaiah (IS 6:8 ) with the charge to "get to know the book of Isaiah." Wow, if there was ever a homework assignment...!

Much love to you, my friend. God bless your 2013.

Hi Allison,
I've been meaning to write to ask if you would mind picking a saint for our family this New Year. With ten weeks left awaiting our newest baby boy, I could use some saintly intervention. Thank you so very much,dearest friend!

Allison said...

Hi, All!

Jasmin - St. AMbrose Doctor of the Church Dec7 praying that all honor the magisterium and though Mary's intercession babies are welcomed into families

And for the beloved ROCKS - we picked 2 for you...because a little friend wanted to help. Her hand was led to - The Holy Souls in purgatory, Nov2 and to pray for the souls and allow them to pray for a deeper communion between the saints in heaven, the souls in purgatory and on earth. My hand was led to St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church Apr29 and to pray for holy women.

Let the saints inspire you, God bless!

Kelli said...

We are joining the church on February 2nd, after years of prayer and consideration! We would love for you to pick a saint for our family. =o)

Dear Kelli, welcome!

So happy for you! In prayer my hand was led to St. Dismas, called the good thief. On the cross next to Christ to whom He said, "This day you will be with me in Paradise," with the prayer requests to pray for conversions!!!

Perfect!!
