Who is your patron saint? Who did you choose for your kids and why?

Mine is St. Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist. It is almost prophetic that my mother chose her for me, because I experienced infertility and became a parent late in life.

I chose Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha for my DD because she is part Native American. I chose St. Michael the Archangel for DS because his middle name is Michael.

  • My confirmation name is from St. Anne - the mother of Mary. But I also feel St. Catherine of Sinena as a parton.

  • My patron saint is St Elizabeth Seton. I thought it was neat that she was a wife and mom of five, then a nun.

    DH chose St Francis Xavier because he is known for preaching and converting parts of Asia, and DH was sent to Korea when he was in the Army. DS chose St Vincent dePaul because of he was charitable.
