I have a special Saint for this year
edit_button

Last Update: The 2007 Devotion will begin on December 1, 2006. Watch my blog's main page for updates.

Important Update: I have received many requests, so I will contact you or post your saint on my blog as soon as I get an email from the woman doing this on who your saints are. It shouldn't be much longer than a few days at most.

Jan 8th Update: Thank you for your interest in the Saints Project. I'm still getting requests :) If you asked for a saint then check the results page. That is the only page that I will post the results on.

This is a long post, but please read this. I received this email from a kind woman who is drawing saints randomly for others. If you would like a saint please just ask.

Saint for the Year

I want to tell you about the practice of picking a saint at random to be your “holy protector” for the year. Actually, the saint is the one who chooses us though. The tradition of letting a saint “pick you,” is not a new one. St. Faustina wrote about it in her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul. The excerpt is below.

“There is a custom among us of drawing by lot, on New Year's Day, special Patrons for ourselves for the whole year. In the morning during meditation, there arose within me a secret desire that the Eucharistic Jesus be my special Patron for this year also, as in the past. But, hiding this desire from my Beloved, I spoke to Him about everything else but that. When we came to refectory for breakfast, we blessed ourselves and began drawing our patrons. When I approached the holy cards on which the names of the patrons were written, without hesitation I took one, but I didn't read the name immediately as I wanted to mortify myself for a few minutes. Suddenly, I heard a voice in my soul: ‘I am your patron. Read.’ I looked at once at the inscription and read, ‘Patron for the Year 1935 - the Most Blessed Eucharist.’ My heart leapt with joy, and I slipped quietly away from the sisters and went for a short visit before the Blessed Sacrament, where I poured out my heart. But Jesus sweetly admonished me that I should be at that moment together with the sisters. I went immediately in obedience to the rule.”Excerpt from Divine Mercy in My Soul, the Diary of St. Faustina"

I have a container full of names ... I will be glad to pick out the name for you and send you the name if you prefer. I am so excited by my saint(s) ... I already picked mine. Well, I should say that they picked me ... I have Saints Marcus and Marcellianus ... they are twin brothers who were sent to prison before their death. St. Sebastian visited them continually in prison and helped keep their faith alive. They are buried near St. Felix and are specifically honored in Spain.

OK now ... here are a couple of immediate ironies in regard to these saints ... I have a SPECIAL place in my heart for twins! As a child, I LOVED reading the story about St. Sebastian. I had a children's book of saints and I think I wore out the pages on St. Sebastian! Felix is my grandfather's name! Silvia, our exchange student, is from Spain! I am so excited to have these two saints to walk through 2006 with me! I'm looking forward as to where and how they will intercede for me.

I was very excited and asked for a saint and she picked St. Apollonius (feast day 04/18) for me. Would anyone like me to ask her to pull a saint for them? Please give me some way to contact you, though, whether it is email or through another blog.

Thanks for all of the interest in this devotion

Darren Norton asked me to read about your Saint project. He was very enthusiastic about it and thought I would be also, which I am. The saints have always been some of my favorite people. The only book in my car is THE LIVES OF THE SAINTS. I read it whenever I am waiting in the car...for a grandchild to get out of school, for a train to pass, for the car to warm up or cool down, etc. It seems fitting that this opportunity would come my way. I, too, would like to participate. Thank you for making this project available to us. Anne

Good morning Moneybags,
I am anxiously awaiting for my saint to choose me. I could use some extra help in my daily life. I want to let you know that I have passed on this site to my Ladies group from church. There are 14 of us, and I am not sure how many will participate, but I wanted them to know about your project.
Thanks for answering His call.

Hi, Monica:

I am actually not the person picking the saints. I just refer the names of those wanting saints to a woman I know who is doing the drawing. It is actually a random drawing of a piece of paper from a tin. There are 1,500 saints in there, so there are fairly good odds of getting the best one :)

I have been out of town and just looked at my emails today, Jan. 1. I really do need a special saint for this year: I just found out that the person who used to lead our family Eucharistic Adoration in our parish has decided to discontinue her involvement and I am worried about taking this on, but my husband and sons want us to continue. I do need the special help of a special saint. Blessings to you for this ministry. Grace D.
