My patron saint!!!

Just found out last night that my patron saint is.......

Alphonsus Maria Liguori

He has a very, very long baptism name, but I loved that it has some of my favourite and most meaninful names in it.

Alphonsus Maria Anthony Cosmos Damien Michael Gaspar....

I loved that his first name is linked to my DH´s (he is Alonso a derivative of Alphonsus ) and that he also has Michael (Miguel my baby) and Maria (Our Lady) and Anthony (my favourite Saint).....

Patron Saint of the confessors, moral theologians and of the lay apostolate..... and founder of the redemptorists. I do not know a lot about his life, but will read more about it his soon..... If anybody has any insight on him would love to hear about it!!!

My DH patron saint: Brigid of Sweden. Patron saint of Europe (he loves it!!) and widows... (I am not too happy about this!!!!).

Will also read more about her!

God bless!!!


  1. Wow those are two WONDERFUL saints! :) St. Alphonsus Liguori is an amazing, amazing man! His book Glories of Mary is really good! :)

  2. Awesome saints! :)

    I think there are a lot of saints who are patrons of widows, and I wondered if that was because people died so frequently in their time? For various reasons... at least that's what I comfort myself with ;) since my 2011 patron is a patron of widows too!

  3. Wow! How did you find out??? (Just curious. I once met a priest with certain mystical gifts who could sometimes see people's patron saints.)
