My favorite saints

Matthew and I have been going to "Theology on Tap" once a month on Mondays. It's a group of youngish people who meet at Samy's for drinks and dinner and a theological presentation. This month Father Wesley is going to speak about 5 Saints, and Matthew and I decided to pick our 5 top saints and see if any of them match up. Here are mine, in the order that I thought of them. I discovered in doing this that I know woefully little about the saints.

St. Juan Diego


St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

St. Francis of Assisi

St. John Baptist de la Salle (patron of teachers)

Yes, she is. We have a little book about her life. Since my name is Elizabeth Ann and all, and her oldest daughter was Anna Maria.

I learned a bit about Gemma Galgani when I was looking at baby names.
