Happy New (Saint) Year

Need a helping hand in 2017? Head over to the Saint's Name Generator to get a randomly selected saint.

I've been using this tool each year for the past several years to select a patron saint for the year. My new saint for 2017 is St. Raymond Fitero who, according to catholic.org, was born in Spain, was a Cistercian warrior abbot and the founder of a military army of Christian soldiers. His feast day is March 15.

  • 2014: St. Cajetan
