Cathofeminism 2013 Patron Saint

I decided to join in on the fun. For the Cathofeminism project, I want 2013 to be a solid year with focus. Aside from participating in a link up here and there in an effort to gain a little more readership, I try to keep this blog on topic and thoughtfully considering the issues related to Catholicism and Feminism, as well as my own "triumphs and struggles" with the subject.

2012 was an empowering year for me. I was able to carve out a little area in the blogosphere where my voice can be heard, and found many women struggling with the same questions to which I seek answers. I am so grateful for all that 2012 brought me!

So, I am jumping in and using the Saint Name Generator to choose a patron saint for the Cathofeminism Project in 2013. Ready? Okay, here it goes...

St. Frances of Rome

Feast: March 9

Patronage: Automobile Drivers; Death of Children; Lay People; People Ridiculed for Their Piety; Taxi Drivers; Widows

An interesting pick, I must say!

  1. I didn't even realize there was a name generator - very interesting selection & I can't wait to see how this plays out for you in 2013!!! There is such a Catholic garden of saints & blesseds, aren't there??? This year I have St Camillus, with whom I was surprised to find out that there are several strong areas he resonates with me! It is the first time I generated by list (I scrolled until my hand got tired): in the past, I went w/ St Dymphna (mental health); Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton (my Confirmation saint - and isn't THAT a story!); and just wide reading in a number of saints, past and present.
