    Today, I was recieved into the Catholic Church and was given the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and holy communion.

    I had expected, earlier this year, to choose Catherine of Alexandria for my confirmation saint. After she was converted by a tutor, she king sent various scholars and theologian to argue her out of her belief, and, when she met them in debate, she made converts of them all. She is the patron saint of apologists, lawyers, philosophers, preachers, students, theologians, and, generally, scrappy people picking fights in charity. (Also potters, spinners, knife sharpeners, and haberdashers, but they’re a little off the point). St Catherine of Alexandria is everything I like best about myself.
