Anonymous asked: what is your conformation saint and why?

My confirmation saint is St Therese of Liseux.  I chose her …….or rather she chose me  after a period of prayer and learning about the various saints.

I love St Therese and I aspire to emulate her little way  She was so filled with ecstasy and love for Jesus and her faith - something I can relate to as I am utterly, hopelessly in love with Jesus, our Lord.

I admire the way she tries to find joy in the most despairing situations and how, despite suffering great ills herself, she wasn’t just trying always to look on the bright side of things, but she was always trying to help others who were also suffering……the whole time, not complaining ONCE about her own pain and sufferings.

what a chic!  what a saint!
