1. Wow, sounds amazing! There are truly some amazing women saints in the history of the Church. Strong, compassionate women that accomplished so much. They are fantastic role models and companions as well.

    “Do I really ask for specific intercessions from the saints as Benedict encourages? Have I been inviting special intercessors to walk beside me along my journey? Am I as familiar with my patron as I could be?”

    These are very good questions! I have to ponder them some myself. I think I’m guilty of the same thing.

    Thanks for the post!
