In “Views from the Pews,” we catch up with parishioners across the diocese and ask them a faith based question. This week, we asked our social media followers the question: “Who is your favorite saint and why?” Below are a few of our favorite responses.
“St Louis de Montfort because of his transformational Consecration to Jesus through Mary. The consecration starts Monday, November 9.”-Maria Lamb, parishioner at St. Louise de Marillac. From left, husband Philip; children Grace (19), Lauren (17), Peter (9), Gabriella (7), John (11), Juliana (21), Gemma (13), Joseph (15); and Maria Lamb
“St. Catherine of Siena. That’s my parish and I always connected with her! She always stayed true to herself and followed God’s plan without any wavering. She’s so inspiring for dedicating her life to Christ!”-Rachael Kriger, parishioner at St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Crescent Township
“St. Bernadette! She is the first saint I read about as an adult. I could relate to her simplicity!”-Marianne Ignelzi, parishioner at St. Aidan Parish, with daughter Maria Taglianetti on her wedding day.
