Yes - mom mentioned that when our house was being built (my dad was working on that), it was around the time of Mother Katharine's passing - he had mentioned that he went to the viewing of this Sister who was from a very wealthy family - mom said that it didn't really register with her at first, with three young kids at that time - :-) - but Mother Katharine's history is so great - as is the history of ALL the saints!

We have been to the Motherhouse quite a bit - mom used to be an Honor Guard there - the HG consists of people who help down in the crypt area when people come to visit - Mother Katharine's sisters Elizabeth and Louise also had several charitable projects in the area, too. Mom always felt that Mother Katharine brought our family to live in the area! :-)

PS - Saint Jude is my patron saint, so I definitely pray to him as well.

SMARGED - can we call you Sister Marie Jude?

I love St. Jude as well. My son is a challenge sometimes (as they all can be, right?), and St. Jude is my go-to saint.

Just saw this thread today.... My special saint is St. Jude - has been since I was a teenager. When I took my vows and we took on our "religious" name, I was Sister Marie Jude. But in the 70's we went back to our baptismal names.

Saint Katharine Drexel is our neighbor - her Motherhouse is right across the street from our church and she and her family and our parish were very involved - our founding pastor and another of our pastors are both buried there on the Motherhouse grounds. My mom was in Rome for her canonization back on October 1, 2000.

Thanks Dee, it is. I have the relic tucked in my Imitation of Christ by the side of my bed.

CJ, Do you mean St. Katharine? You know Xavier University right? She was very wealthy and is best known for her work with African American Children and Native American Children. She has great wealth from her father and her step mother was a Bouvier (Jackie Kennedy's maiden name).It was her step mother who was very generous and taught her these this. http://www.ewtn.com/library/mary/drexel.ht

Saint Katharine Drexel. I have a relic that a priest, who was from Philly, gave to me. I admire her great generosity. I always admire those with great wealth who use it for the conversion of souls and the building of the Kingdom. Much like St. Nicholas in many respects.

St. Anthony.

Of course, we're on such a first name basis in my organized chaos that there are times when I just start telling "Uncle Tony" that I can't find it again. It's my Mother's favorite thing to tease me about.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that.
St. Veronica is definitely a good one for that. As is St. Monica - her son eventually became a saint! I hear St. Joseph is good for conversions of the heart, as is St. Augustine himself.

All the best to you.
Would you like this added to the intentions for our rosary novena we are starting next week?

I am praying to St. Veronica a lot lately. Patron saint of disappointing children!!! BECAUSE, my son, brought up in a catholic grade school and catholic high school, is engaged to a very nice girl who does not have much faith. They have no plans to get married in a church. And I am devastated by this.

Thanks for starting the thread, TLIZCARTER!

I love reading about people's favourite saints. We had a thread ages ago, but it must have fallen down the forum due to lack of responses. I'm glad the topic has been revived again.

My favourite saints are:

Our Blessed Mother, St. Joseph
St. Anthony
St. Andre (latest Canadian saint!)
St. Gianna
St. Maximillian Kolbe

My older dd's favourite one is St. Joan of Arc
My son's are St. Joseph, St. Anthony, and St. Christopher
My younger dd's are St. Mary, Our Blessed Mother; St. Anne, and St. Bernadette

It is fascinating to me which saints appeal or speak to different people.

Saint Jude - he is my patron, I was born on his feast day, which is very appropriate for me - talk about impossible, lost causes! LOL

I love St. Peter. He blew it big time, yet Christ loved him so very much. It's a constant reminder for me.
Also, St. Michael the Archangel, St. Patrick, St. Bridget, St. Therese the Little Flower (my Confirmation saint), and my sister-in-law. Also the many unnamed nartyrs of WWII and currently in the Middle East.

My favorite saint is St. Joan of Arc. She is so amazing, and I've felt drawn to her ever since my confirmation. My confirmation name is Joan :)

My favourite saint is St. ann - my patron saint. There are a number of ways my life is reflected in hers, and it gives me much to ponder.

St. Ann

I haven't always paid a lot of attention to the saints... though the Litany of the Saints, sung, has always touched me DEEPLY... we had it sung at our wedding and I felt as though these were the most important guests we had invited.

Lately I've had a much stronger attraction to the lives of the saints, and I am taking more time to learn about their lives. Some of my new friends, and those who fascinate me most include:

Saint Jean-Baptiste-Marie Vianney

I've been reading the book "My Life with the Saints" by James Martin and he writes about many of the Saints that are inspiring to him. Which Saints are favorites to the memebers of the group?
