52 Saints ~ Introduction and a Few Suggestions

Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, Van Eyck
The 52 Saints series begins this Sunday with Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity. If you did not know about this series before now, a group of friends and I are going to write posts about a different Saint each Sunday in 2016. All the weeks are not taken, so if you are interested in joining us, please let me know.

When you read the post about Bl. Elizabeth, you will see that the entire first section is about how I came to choose this saint--well, about how I didn't exactly choose her. The reason I wrote about this at such length is so that you might see that there are more possibilities to this series than perhaps you have imagined. It's fine to write about a saint with whom you are already familiar, and whose story you want to share--especially if your experience with the saint is part of the story--but you might also consider praying about who you ought to choose and keep your eyes open for someone new. So, while I will need to know about a month, or so in advance who is writing about whom and when, I'm not asking anyone to commit to every saint now. Of course, if you know whom you want to write about, let me know so someone else won't get there first.

There are two pages on the sidebar, one with a list of the people who have said they will write and the saints they have chosen, and the one with the definite schedule. You will see that the first four weeks are covered. You can't leave comments there because I have found that it is when people comment on the pages (as opposed to posts) that the comments quit working right. If you want to tell me something you can leave a comment here, or email me.



  1. I can find the list of contributors in the sidebar, but not the schedule.

  2. This is fascinating. As far as I can remember I'd never heard of her.

  3. Yes, sorry, that comment was supposed to be on the post about her.
