Drum roll please...
God clearly led us to Saint Padre Pio for the year 2013. He will be our family's 'go to' Saint for the whole year!
The children have been super excited while waiting in suspense for this annoucement. It's kinda like opening another present. Waiting to find out which Saint will be chosen for us. I love it! This is exactly the feeling I'd hoped would come. Each January 1st I make the big announcement
I took a week to pray about who our Saint of the year should be. It was obvious to me that we were being led to him.
Want to find out more about him? Go here Saint Padre Pio
Aside from being the patron Saint of Civil workers. He's also the patron Saint of adolescents. With my oldest child soon to be going off to 'real' school for the first time I find it fitting that he's got a special place in his heart for the young.
We have a lot to learn about him, but that makes all the more fun and exciting.
St. Padre Pio, pray for us!
Happy New Year everyone!
