Role models galore

More saints are packed into this rich week of not-so-Ordinary Time:

  • Today is the feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary
  • Tomorrow is the feast of St. Rose of Lima
  • Wednesday is the feast of St. Bartholomew
  • Thursday is the feast of St. Louis
  • Saturday is the feast of St. Monica

Wow — that’s a whole lot of role models packed into a week’s time. Maybe it would be fun to match a statement from below with the corresponding saint above? Give it a try:

  • was a third-order Dominican
  • martyrdom by flaying
  • King of France
  • a “woman clothed with the sun”
  • a devoted [and patient] mother – prayed twenty years to convert her son

How blessed we are to have such a rich collection of friends to inspire us.
