A friend of mine has been picking a saint companion for the last few years, and I decided to give it a try. What is a saint companion? A saint companion is a saint you pick at the beginning of the year and journey with throughout the year -- you grow in faith as you learn about your chosen saint. You also ask this saint to help you and to pray for you throughout the year. Here is a saint generator you might like to give a whirl: Saint's Name Generator
My friend picked a saint for me. Bl. Mother Teresa will be my companion for 2012. I really like this idea and can't wait to learn more about one of my favorite people. I'm betting Mother Teresa will be able to help me in many areas of my life!
