Patron Saint for AD 2007

Head over to A Catholic Life blog to join the 2007 Saint for the Year Devotion.

Moneybags states:

“I want to tell you about the practice of picking a saint at random to be your “holy protector” for the year. Actually, the saint is the one who chooses us though. The tradition of letting a saint “pick you,” is not a new one. St. Faustina wrote about it in her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul…”

We all need Heavenly protection.

Thanks so much for posting this idea Father. I had been thinking about different ways to renew and live our rich Catholic heritage and LO! HARK! This idea of the Patron Saint of the Year appeared!

So I am going to publish it in our bulletin and let people put their name and information in a box at the back of the church. I'll let the Holy Spirit help me match people and saints up. Lets see what it does for us out here in the Pacific Northwest.

Be sure to tell my friend Moneybags you saw this on Overheard. He's going to be overwhelmed by the holy desires of people out in blogsphere. He can handle it. Also, pray for his vocation.

Many Thanks and Blessings!
