I cannot pick just one. "Mary", after Our Lady, is my Confirmation name. My husband's is "Joseph". St. Maximilian Kolbe is the founder of the Militia Immaculata, and I am a member. Unfortunately I find that I must follow in the footsteps of St. Monica, and I wonder how she even managed. (I also belong to the St. Monica Sodality.) I admire St. Thomas Moore and the steadfast holiness of St. Rita. When my children were little, I believe that St. Anthony must have had to LIVE at our house in order to keep up with us. I think St. Jude (the saint of impossible causes has met his match with my one daughter. I have come to LOVE St. Theresa the Little Flower, and "big" Teresa (St. Teresa of Avila). And I find Edith Stein awesome. In short, I just can't pick just one--they are all wonderful.

Besides the Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph;

The Saint for some reason I have always felt especially close to is Saint Dismas, the Good Thief/(the repentant thief on the cross)... Don't ask me why, I'm no thief but just always felt close to him as Saints go.. I would also say, within the order of grace I'm also very frequent with my Gaurdian Angel.. and a few others more common..

I have always admired St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. I also like St. Michael the Archangel, ST. Vincent de Paul, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. John the Baptist, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Agnes and especially the one for whom I was named, St. Therese the little flower.

I chose St. Aquinas for obvious reasons though I have a special place in my heart for St. Edith Stein.

Please pray for the future canonisations of ArchBishop Sheen, G.K. Chesterton (The Apostle of Common Sense), Pope Leo XIII and Pius XII.

St. Augustine and the Holy Mother.

Tomorrow is my baptism and confirmation and I picked Augustine Maria as my confirmation name.

Where Peter is, there is the Church. Where the Church is, there is eternal Life.



"The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society"- Mother Theresa

"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion?

As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even his life to love us. So the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love - that is, to give until it hurts... her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.

And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion".
- Mother Theresa

Excluding Our Lady, because She is assumed, of the ones you listed, I would have to go with St. Therese. However, my absolute favourite saint is St. Agnes of Rome. I am in love with all of the early Church martyrs, so anyone else during that time could also be considered a favourite.

Of those who should be saints, but as of yet are not, I absolute adore Archbishop Fulton Sheen and Chesterton, though I don't know that much about GKC's actual life.
