How mightily blessed am I! Two patron Saints have chosen me for 2006 -- TWO -- St. Patrick and St. Hilary of Poitiers.

Before I was baptized (and became a Catholic Christian), I felt that I had two guardian angels. Such a klutz was I that I needed two to watch over me. Some days after having been baptized, when I thought about it, I felt that I had only one guardian angel. I guess that after the Holy Spirit was breathed into me at the sacraments of initiation, I then only needed one guardian.

Folks, it is no accident that I will have two patron Saints. It means that I am about to enter into battle, but that I will be too weak. Blessed be God forever that He has given me this help.

Now I have to go read up double duty.

Greetings:

Your first Saint chosen was St. Hilary of Poitiers. I didn't know though because the email was sent a few days ago and didn't arrive until this afternoon. So, I sent your name away to the woman drawing the names and you had another saint pulled.

Very lucky :)

I'm very pleased with the Saint project. It's almost too much to handle. I have over 60 requests to fill right now and emails keep coming in.

God Bless and thanks for asking for a saint.
