Feeling Virtuous? Which Saint are you?

All Saints Day, the day on which Catholics celebrate all the saints, known and unknown, is a surprisingly old feast. It arose out of the Christian tradition of celebrating the martyrdom of saints on the anniversary of their martyrdom. When martyrdom increased during the persecutions of the late Roman Empire, local dioceses instituted a common feast day to make sure that all martyrs, known and unknown, were properly honored.

There are thousands of canonized saints, those individuals officially recognized by the Church as holy men and women worthy of imitation. Because miracles have been associated with these people, and their lives have been fully examined and found holy by the Church to be prime examples of holiness, and powerful intercessors before God. There are also many patron saints, guardians or protectors of different areas and states of life. For instance, St. Vitus is the patron saint against oversleeping, and St. Joseph of Cupertino is the patron saint of air travelers. It may sound crazy to have a patron saint against oversleeping, but keep in mind the Church has something meaningful for every area of our human lives. All of these saints are celebrated throughout the year and many have their own feast days.

    Saint Patrick and green dresses? I feel a dance coming on: https://youtu.be/LgNb2XZgtog

    My saint is Clemens Maria Hofbauer, patron in hopeless cases. It’s really my mothers fault.

      Snort! Look, that is just what the quiz said — doesn’t mean I have to like the hornpipes. 😀
      Hopeless cases? REALLY?!?!? Maybe that should be my Saint, too. XO

  2. I’m Cecilia and I hear music in my heart that guides my every decision. That’s why I can stay true to my convictions no matter what it might cost me. My patron should be Ambrose, cos I love bees (at least this part is true) 🙂
