Meme: Patron Saint of What?

Sue at Sue Elvis Writes, tagged me for this Saintly meme.

Assuming you are a saint, and your cause has been executed, your miracles confirmed, your date on the calendar established, all that is required is select that of which Holy Mother Church will name you Patron(ess).
For this meme, you must name your patronage and then tag 5 other people who would like to play along. Link your answer to your nominator's post.

Well firstly I must say, I am humbled to be tagged for this meme.
I have been pondering this question for some days. Patron Saint of what. Me. I am not a Saint, but what would I be Patron Saint of?

There could be a few areas.
Modern Family Issues. This one is close to my heart with brokenness even in my own childrens lives. I understand the affects society has on our families.
Justice for the falsely accused. Again close to our heart. We have spend years asking why were we accused of and judged by our own families. We read recently a book called Sarahs last wish- a story about our local Docs, local teaching hospital and thee manipulation of the legal system and its affects on the health of sarah and her family. My heart connected with this family, and how it was turned upside down,  and I understood there pain. I have a friend at the moment undergoing terrible allination and it upsets me and I pray for her and her family.
 Marriage; the upholding of the traditional marriage and family values. For our society to see A Married couple -Male and Female, Husband and wife, as a witness as to how Christ  loves his Church. This is a very scary situation in our world at present.
These three causes, I feel very strongly about and would be quite humbled to pray for and be Patron saint of any of these issues.
But I feel the most important of all these is the sanctity of the family and a traditional marriage. This is the cause, as such, that I would loved to be Blessed as Patron Saint of.

So I hope the following 5 bloggers will accept the invitation to continue this thought prevoking fun meme.
Corrine at Embracing hats
Therese at Aussie coffee shop
Gae at Cherished Hearts at home
Tricia at Do Whatever he Tells you
Leonie at Living without School

Oh and one last one.Gods Girl.
God Bless.

Thank you for joining in Leanne.

It is a very thought provoking meme. The idea came from a very funny post:

I love the cause you have chosen. I could see you praying some very heart felt prayers for the sanctity of the family and marriage, if God chooses to make you a visible saint of the Church's calendar. God bless!

Leanne said...

Thanks Sue, I have just completed this. Maybe I took it a little bit more serious than intended, but it is a serious area of our faith.
Me a Saint, ... Thank you for your kind commments.
I now just need to link everyone to my post.

Wow I like the way you described the three causes and thoughtfully gave your response. Will have to think a lot myself.. Thanks for the tag!

Leanne said...

It seemed pretty easy until, I started really thinking and then I hesitated with my response. .
Hope you enjoy it Leonie

God Bless

Hi Leanne, I think we both took the meme quite seriously but that was good! It was worth thinking about carefully and giving a considered response. God bless!

A considered response..Yes. I certainly took it to prayer. Looking forward to seeing the other bloggers responses.
