Sounds like a great saint to emulate!
Thank you for telling me about her.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Yes!! She is the Sixth Station of the Cross. She fought her way through the crowds and braved the soldiers to get to Jesus...she took off her veil and handed it to Him so he could wipe away the blood, tears and sweat. He thanked her by leaving the impression of His face on her veil. She was a brave, feisty woman who did what she felt was right, even though she knew it may get her killed. She stood up for what was right (and would not accept what was wrong) even if she was in the minority.

That's neat that you share a name, in a way.

I have the same Confirmation name as the priest who brought me into the Church, as he did not remember the one I had chosen, so he used St. Patricia (his is St. Patrick). It makes me feel connected with that wonderful man and priest, so I am so glad it happened that way.

St. Veronica? Remind me about her - is she the one who offered Jesus a cloth to wipe His face as He walked to Calvary?

I love St. Gianna, too!! My favorite female Saint is Veronica. I was proud to take her name for my Confirmation name.

I was reading more on Saint Gianna - she really is awesome - as are all of the Saints, of course!

He's often my "go-to" saint as well, when things get discouraging.

I also ask St. Gianna for intercession, especially when my kids are concerned, or anything about illness, especially in children. As a mother and a pediatrician, I figured she has special insight into that.

I always pray to Saint Jude, patron of the Impossible - he's my patron saint, and very rightfully so! :-)

I would say have your husband read the bio on each saint and decide which one he feels drawn to pray to.

A google search brought up three: St. George, St. Thomas, and Joan of Arc.

I did a quick check on two Catholic sites...St. Thomas was listed on one and St. Lucy on the other! I only knew St. Lucy as patron of those with eye problems, but her courage during the time she was being forced to marry a pagan and subsequent torture and death was also cited.

Hope this helps, and prayers for both you and your husband as you face these trials.

All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Today: I pray to shift the way I approach life, to move deliberately and consciously, to become attentive.

SparkPeople editor Stepfanie says:
At some point you realize that life is just that: life. Ups, downs, good, bad, it's all just life. It all balances out, and letting every little bump in the road sideline you is no way to live.
