Happy New (Saint) Year

My randomly generated patron saint for the new year is.... St. Radegunde. You can get one too. Just head over to Conversion Diary's Saint's Name Generator.

As was the case in the previous two years (2014: St. Cajetan; 2013: St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi) my new saint is one I wasn't previously familiar with. St. Radegunde is the patron saint of:

  • Difficult marriages
  • Drowning
  • Fever
  • Leprosy
  • Loss of parents
  • Potters
  • Scabies
  • Scabs
  • Ulcers
  • Weavers

Doesn't sound like a happy year ahead, does it? Maybe I'll take up weaving and pottery! Or perhaps other people dealing with these situations need some extra prayers in 2015. So that's what I'll ask St. Radegunde to do.
