In preparation for Advent (is that redundant?!) - I urge all of you to go and get your
PATRON SAINT assignment for 2013!
My special friend in heaven and intercessor for 2013 is:
St. Margaret of Antioch
Feast: July 20
Patronage: Against Kidney Disease; Against Loss of Milk by Nursing Mothers; Against Sterility; Childbirth; Dying People; Expectant Mothers; Falsely Accused People; For Safe Childbirth; Nurses; Pregnant Women; Women
Funny! This year was St. George, and interestingly, St Margaret of Antioch is also represented in art with a dragon. Looks like I'll be continuing in my quest to battle dragons next year :)
