1. Saying Goodbye to a Great Staffer: Edial
    Please help me wish Edial a wonderful blessed journey as he steps down from CF staff.
    His footprint on our ministry will always remain but his presence will be greatly missed. I'm sure he will come around as a member to all his favorite forums but for now please join me at his profile page to wish him many thanks for the years of service he has brought to us all.
    All of us on CF staff will miss him dearly!!

    Thank you for sharing this! WHen I picked this name as a confirmation name, My teacher had to look her up because she thought I made it up. She thought I had taken it from the "scholastic" book sale and added an "a". Boy was she red when she found the name. Anyhoo... Thanks again for sharing!

    Gotta go with Thomas Aquinas, if for no other reason than that I hope to be able to glorify God with my academic work.

    Sister of St. Benedict, Feast day February 10. :)

    I love the story about her soul taking the form of a dove when she died, as St. Benedict watched it going up to heaven.

    WOW...I love em all..

    St Anthony is always helping us..
    Our Lady is my favorite I suppose, but all of them are good.

    Plus, all those who were my family whom died..and made it to heaven. Altho not canonized...are Saints too. :):groupray:

    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.

    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.
