For God so loved the world, as to give His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. – Saint John the Apostle

About "Saint Quote of the Day"


As you know, on our Saint Quote of the Day, we have a page that is exactly what it says...a daily saint quote.

I search the web, online publications sites, saints sites, the web sites of various orders to find quotes from the sayings, the writings, the lives of various saints. I try to quote from a saint on his or her feast day, but, sometimes there are no records of any writings or sayings. Many of the quotes are from well known Saints of the Church, and many are also from less familiar saints, blesseds, and venerables as well. I think the less familiar ones incline us to learn more about them. It works on Marie that way, because often I will post a saint quote from a lesser known saint, and she can't rest until she has researched their life, and writes a piece on their life on Saints of the Faith.

So, I had an idea.

Imagine that.

All Catholics have a patron saint, a spiritual hero or heroine that is special to us. Some of us have two or three. Saint Jude is my patron saint for instance, and Saint Polycarp of Smyrna is one of my heroes. So, send us an email by clicking here, and tell us who your patron saint or other favorite saints are. If you have a favorite quotation from them, include that in your email also. Then, I will take the top ten and post a quote from them (if one is available) one at a time over the next few weeks. I will also try to include a picture or icon of the saint (when one is available) with their quote. Be sure to make the subject line of the email "Favorite Saints", without the quotation marks, of course.

You don't have to be Catholic to participate in this either. I have found that many of our non-Catholic readers have favorite saints also.
