Patron saint of this blog for 2008!


Saint Anthony Mary Claret!!! Yay!!! Thanks to Aunty Esther for informing me!! :-D

Saint Anthony Mary Claret. :-D (I just had to post the picture here because the one on the sidebar got squished)
Also known as: Antonio María Claret y Clará
Patron saint of: Catholic press, Claretians, Missionary Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and weavers!
Yay!! So I guess now he will help me when I can't remember all those codes and stitches for crocheting...
And he also had a special devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! Last month (or last year) my mom consecrated me to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and now every Saturday I pray the Act of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

I (name), a faithless sinner - renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose thee this day for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity.

prayer is found here

Hi CT, the picture may be distorted in the sidebar because a) it is either too big or b) you have shrink to fit checked as an option when uploading from blogger.
I will email your mom a smaller version just in case it is the size.

Thanks Aunty Esther! I will try it soon.

Hi Pueo! remember that website that I told you about? I think you could just say there like: May I request one? (or you request one for each of your family members!)
Okay, well if you need more help then just tell me and then I will talk to you on the TR forum! I hope you get a good saint! :-D
(not that none of them are good)

Thank you!

CT, I noticed that the picture is still stretched a bit. Did you uncheck "Shrink to Fit". That should do it. But uncheck it before uploading the picture.
BTW, thanks for referring folks to the Patron Saint Ministry Blog :-) Keep it up and I may add you as a contributor :-) Actually, that wouldn't be a bad idea...
