Last year, the saint that picked me, via Moneybags over at A Catholic Life, was St. Augustine. It was good to feel like I had a speciall intercessor for the year, and there were times when I "burned up the prayer lines" to him over all the things that happened in 2006.
So, when the chance to participate in the same exercise for 2007 came along, I jumped at the chance. This year's saint?
A martyr? I'll need a martyr for 2007? One that, at least in legend, was pierced with arrows, healed by St. Irene, and then clubbed to death?
Better start early: Dear St. Sebastian, pray for me, a sinner.
