Which saint will choose you in 2008?

Stop over at Angela's new blog, "Where Angels Go" and put a request in her comment box for a patron saint to be drawn for you for the year 2008. She is taking over for Seminarian Matthew at "A Catholic Life", who had to abandon blogging while in the seminary.

The tradition is that the saint chooses you. My saint this year is Saint Julie Billiart, who is French and was known for her cheerfulness--certainly something to ask her to intercede for on my behalf. Two of her most famous quotes are, "Oh, qu'il est bon, le bon Dieu" which means, "Oh, how good is the good God" and "Never let the peace of your heart be disturbed by anything in the world."

Also, Divine Mercy blog has a new name and an additional focus. While still promoting devotion to the Divine Mercy, the blog will now focus on Saint Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower, and will be called, Saint Therese's Roses.

All the angels
and all the Saints,
pray for us!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
