As School begins remember these 8...
As school begins today for St. Mary Elementary and Pp. St. John Paul II Middle school & many other schools (or in the coming days or weeks for other schools) here are
8 Saints every student should Know & have as friends...
(This is a revision of an article I wrote this past May):
1. St. Andrew
~ Meeting people, enjoying fun & healthy activities. (St. Andrew was always meeting people and bringing them to Jesus. Definitely the coolest of the 12 Apostles!
2. St. Joseph of Cupertino
~ Test Taking (you may not need his help on the 1st day but you soon will...). There’s a wonderful story of how he passed his finals to get Ordained.
3. St. Expeditus
~ For those of us who have a tendency to Procrastinate or put things off...
4. St. Isidore of Seville
~ Computers (Internet/ Technology)
5. St. Anthony of Padua
~ Lost Things (Has anyone seen my homework?)
6. St. Francis de Sales
~ Writing ~ a major emphasis at St. Mary / Pp. John Paul II. So if you need help w/ a paper or report ~ St. Francis has your back.
7. St. Joseph
~ Finances & Family: Because parents and older students can use a little help with finances & family. St. Joseph will show us how to be a Christian gentleman.
8. The Blessed Virgin Mary
~ For anything and everything else - Mary is the Queen of all saints and the Mother of Jesus; she knows exactly what we need.
Enjoy your new school year!
