It seems silly really, to have so much admiration for a saint, to have read more than one book about him, and then to realize I did not know what he is the patron saint of? Not a clue. Should I be telling you this? I am losing my credibility here? Hey, I can’t know everything.
I looked it up; here is the list: Dioceses of San Sebastion and Bilbao, Biscay & Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, Military Ordinariate of the Philippines, Society of Jesus, soldiers, Educators and Education (BIO from Catholic Online). I read it and until I got to Educators and Education I was a bit distraught. I don’t live in any of those dioceses; FYI, I looked them up to be sure, they are in Spain. I have nothing to do with the military or the Philippines or soldiers. Of course I do love the Jesuits, especially Pope Francis. Clearly though the best connection for me is educators and education, that’s me. I’m all about learning, seeking knowledge and sharing it with others.
I feel better with that connection, though there’s no reason not to love a saint just because you are moved toward him or her.
Who is your favorite saint?
