Saintly Meme

I have been doubly blessed...My dear blogging friends, Colleen, at Thoughts on Grace, & Judy, at A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings, both tagged me in the following meme.

Assuming you are a saint, and your cause has been executed, your miracles confirmed, your date on the calendar established, all that is required is select that of which Holy Mother Church will name you Patron(ess).

For this meme, you must name your patronage and then tag 5 other people who would like to play along. Link your answer to your nominator's post.

First of all, let me just say that I am far from being a saint at this point in my life! I know I fall short of God's expectations of me on a daily basis. Thank goodness for His everlasting mercy & forgiveness!

If by some quirky chance I do become a patron saint for others' intercession requests, I think I would be the patroness of mental health & neurological issues for children. This is based on our past couple year's experiences w/ The Archangel & his ADHD/aggression issues (& more recent issues w/ The Prophet as he is closing in on puberty).

I would join St. Dymphna in praying for those affected by the MANY mental & neurological disorders & illnesses, specifically focusing on children & their parents. My prayers have increased greatly as we try to find the right "chemical cocktail" of medication to help The Archangel. Even after all we've been through & tried, I STILL do not feel at peace w/ where we are.

So, now to tag some friends. Please forgive me if you've already been tagged in this meme by someone else. Also, if you have not been tagged & want to participate, by all means, please do! I'd love to hear your patronage!

Wow, I feel honored to be chosen...now for some contemplation! And thank you for letting me know you tagged me. I would have seen it sooner or later, but I'm all behind from an internet fast last week, the blog is the last thing to be caught up!

What an awesome and wonderful cause you have chosen.

Perfect choice! This meme has been amazing in the way we have chosen our patronages. I pray with you for your son and all families touched by neurological and mental health issues. Thanks for joining in this meme with me!

What comfort moms and dads would find in your heavenly help! Isn't it amazing how the trials and sufferings we have in our earthly life lead us to want to reach out and help others in that same area?
Prayers for your son and for your whole family as you strive to help him live his life to the fullest amidst his challenges. Thanks for joining the game with us:)

I love St Dymphna, she's my Confirmation saint. :) I'll probably have to write that story sometime.
Thanks for tagging me - what a fun!
