Other canonized saints, such as, St. Francis of Assisi are known for other things. St. Francis is known as the patron saint of ecology, nature, and animals.
St. Catherine of Sienna is the patron saint of nurses.
Our newly canonized saints, John XXIII and John Paul II, are also patrons.
John XXIII is the patron saint of Papal Delegates.
John Paul II is the co-patron saint of World Youth Day.
Thomas Aquinas is the patron saint of teachers, students, and academics.
Mary Magdelene is the patron saint of tanners, pharmacists, and hair dressers.
St Augustine is the patron saint of brewers, printers and theologians.
So, since our goal is to become a saint, whether we are canonized or not, of what will you be a patron saint?
I'm thinking, I'd like to be the patron saint of those who are different, misfits, artists, and those who really don't fit into the mold. I want to be the patron saint of those who march to a different drummer and follow a separate path.
That sounds really good to me.
