Saints of Favor

Name your four favorite saints, your favorite blessed saint, and the person you think should be canonized.

Thecla - both a favorite and one who should be canonized, since she's a saint in the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches but not in ours
Mary Magdalene
Augustine of Hippo
Mary, the mother of Jesus

Mother Theresa is really the only blessed I know, unless you're counting all the people the Anglicans have added to our calendars but who aren't Catholic saints. I've included them in the regular saints, though.

And I tag Tripp, Lauren, Ryan, and Susie.

Your blog is now VERY pink. My tired eyes can't look at it right now, nor can my weary brain think of saints, but I'll work on the meme.

Yeah, I know. I'm figuring it's at least better than the former boldness, but it's still way too pink even for me. I'm trying to figure out a way around it.

To be pedantic -- as befits me -- I think that one can fairly say that Anglicans or Episcopalians may regard Thecla as a saint, but that the Episcopal Church doesn't observe a feast day in her honor.

Which is not to say we shouldn't or that there's not a problem, just that the problem has a minutely different texture.

But to be obstinate, as befits me, I think that one may fairly use Thecla as the "should be" if one can't think of anyone else in that category. :)

Yup, that works for me.
