Basically, what you do, is you give them your e-mail address, and they will randomly assign you a patron saint for a year. The reason I like this is because it gives a great opportunity to develop a new relationship with a friend in heaven. I already have a devotion to many saints in heaven, like Zelie Martin, Margaret Clitherow, Thomas More, Cecilia, Maximilian Kolbe...really, too many to name. Having a patron specifically for 2013 to add to my little personal litany will add something very special. PLUS, I will have the opportunity to possibly learn about a saint that I may not have heard of before.
I highly recommend that you visit A Catholic Life and sign up to receive a special patron saint for 2013. Also, you can learn a little history about this practice. I am so excited to learn who mine will be!
