* saint francis, who dragged me kickin' n' screamin' into the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church
* saint gemma, the lovliest and gentlest bearer of the stigmata
* saint teresa of avila, who reminds us that there are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers
* saint margaret clithero, one extraordinary mother & my hero
* blessed andre bessette, the humble servant & healer
* saint jerome, just cuz i admire his wit
* saint joseph, who always keeps a gracious eye on my marriage
* saint mary the virgin and mother of God, for being so patient and loving towards us all

(with a nod to TS, et al.)


My "favs": Saint Gianna Molla, a mother who gave everything for her child, to the point of death; and who in life gave everything to and for Christ Jesus.

Saint Joan of Arc, woman of courage and valour;

Saint Therese of Lisieux and Saint Teresa of Avila;

and of course of Mother.

Happy All Saints to the Mamas!

St. Jerome, who inspires me with his kindly approach to everyone, his all-inclusive tolerance, his patience, and his friendly smile.

I was St. Margaret Clitherow for All Hallows a few years ago, and my firstborn is named after her--very cool saint mother!
