A sweet little tip o' the hat from Heaven


The nice folk over at The Pious Sodality of Church Ladies are randomly assigning patron saints for next year. I like to do this, because it gives me something new to contemplate, and I've always learned a lesson from the saint who picked me for the year.

So, my assigned saint (and special prayer subject) for the year is:

St Phoebe

Pray for Catholic charities

I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is (also) a minister of the church at Cenchreae, that you may receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the holy ones, and help her in whatever she may need from you, for she has been a benefactor to many and to me as well. [Rom 16, 1]

In this year when political issues may have great bearing on the work and ministries of our Catholic hospitals, I think a daily prayer for Catholic charities will be a good thing.

But that's not why it's a heaven-sent match.

St. Phoebe's feast day is September 3rd.

That was my beloved mom's birthday.

Don't tell me that's just coincidence.

St. Phoebe, pray for me.
