My saint ( St Bernadette )

My Saint is St Bernadette …

Feastday: April 16
Patron of illness, people ridiculed for their piety, poverty, shepherds, shepherdesses, and Lourdes, France
Birth: January 7, 1844
Death: April 16, 1879

St. Bernadette was born in Lourdes, France on January 7, 1844. Her parents were very poor and she was the first of nine children. She was baptized at St. Pierre’s, the local parish church, on January 9. As a toddler, Bernadette contracted cholera and suffered extreme asthma. Unfortunately, she lived the rest of her life in poor health.

I picked her because she is the patron saint of illness and my grandad is ill.


My Saint is…..

……James, also known as Santiago!

Saint James the Greater was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. He was the first apostle to become a martyr and the only one whose martyrdom was recorded in the New Testament. Son of Zebedee and Salome and brother of John the Apostle, Saint James the Great is the Patron of Pilgrims and Labourers. He is also known as the Patron Saint of Spain, having earned the Spanish title Santiago Matamoros which means “Saint James the Moor-slayer”.

I chose James firstly, because my Grandpa Jim was a very important person in my life and he has gone to heaven. Secondly, because he is the patron saint of labourers and my Pap Bradley was a Painter & Decorator he’d be his Saint too. I miss these guys :'(. Oh aye, and my Mum has walked the Camino to raise money for street children in Ecuador. She has a special credencial, certificate and medal.

my saint

My saint is St. Margaret of Hungary, O.P. She was born on the 27th of January, 1242 and died on the 18th of January, 1271. In fact, her feast day is on tha same day she died. She was the daughter of King Bela IV. I chose this Saint because my mum chose this Saint when she was making her Comfirmation 🙂
