List four favorite saints, two favorite blessed, and a person who you think should be a saint.
St. John Neumann: I feel that through his intercession, a miracle of healing occurred with my son Fritz.
St. Apollonia: patron of tooth problems, I also feel that her prayers aided in Fritz’s healing and his on-going dental issues.
St. Therese of Lisieux: her “little way” is hard and steep, but I feel it most closely matches the challenges faced by stay-at-home moms.
St. George: since we recently celebrated his feast day, he’s on my mind right now.
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta: of course. How can I not be inspired by a saint I grew up admiring?
Blessed Charles de Foucauld: I saw someone else had listed him, too. His apparent lack of success in converting Muslims and his death at their hands despite their friendship inspires me to have faith that whatever work I do will eventually bear fruit even if I do not see the results myself.
A person I think should be a saint:
Pope John Paul II.
