Patron Saints of One Small Rose

I want to tell you about the patron saints of my blog!

Before I schedule each post, I pray and ask for the intercession of the saints below.

After each name, I list the reason why they are one of the patrons.

If you click the name, it will bring you to a webpage that explains more about them.

The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God

  • Because I have a devotion to her, under many titles, and love her as my Spiritual Mother
  • Because the original motto of my blog was Ad Jesum per Mariam which means “To Jesus through Mary” and is the essence of Marian Consecration

St. Joseph, Her Spouse

  • Because I have a devotion to him and love him as my Spiritual Father
  • Because the new motto of my blog is Ad Jesum per Mariam et Joseph which means “To Jesus through Mary and Joseph”
