    I admire her bravery in standing in her faith.

    Reminds me of those Christians who did not renounce their faith and got their heads severed by the infamous terrorist group.

    St Teresa of Avila, followed by St Therese of Lisieux. But Joan of Arc is probably the next fave, due to the hearing voices thing :awesome:

    I miss 'cholytrolling :daydreaming:

    Mine massively varies depending on my mood and often my favourite for the day will be whoever's feast day it is.

    Big fan of St Cuthbert though!
    Been doing quite a bit of reading about the martyrs of England and Wales lately, so though it may not be pc for this thread (:mmm:) imma say also Edmund Campion. :awesome:

    And then of course there's JPII and his beautiful theology of the body!

    People thought she was a cross-dresser because she wore male uniform (any sort of armour was men's clothing back in those days).

    I don't know those first two despite studying history. Do you not like any of the male saints like St Nick and St Andrew?

    I don't really like the modern saints like John Paul. Campion sounds quite Spanish. I did a google search tho.

    St Cuthbert was a Geordie, and therefore I am a fan. Along with Bede (I think he's a saint).

    I did my A Level history essay on Pope Innocent III. I dunno if he got canonised. He was an intelligent man.

    Hmm, interesting point - I don't think I have a fave male saint. The one that instantly pops to my mind is St Peter because he was a bit of a screw-up but Jesus still loved him very dearly anyway

    I feel a bit annoyed that he changed his name from Simon to Peter, as if to say that Simon is an inadequate name. Though there was another Simon as a disciple - but we rarely hear from him (My name is Simon). Simon was a fisherman but became a "fisher of men".

    A www I'm sure there were other reasons for the name change.

    One becomes a saint by receiving God's Spirit, not be decision of others after you have done certain "miracles" or good works.

    "Saints days" and "patron saints" are nothing to do with Jesus & his church, neither the practice of praying to saints.
