Saint Spotlight: Paula and Eustochium

One day, my friend and I were trying to find out who helped St. Jerome translate the scriptures into Latin…

I stumbled across this information while searching for a saint to write about, not while searching for an answer to our question!

Soon after this discovery, I found images of these saints in my friend’s photos.

Because there are so many connections, it seems this information was revealed for a purpose.

I believe that I’m meant to write about these saints.

This Saint Spotlight is dedicated to: Paula and Eustochium.

A New Series

I was recently inspired to begin a new series on my blog!

Since I enjoy learning about the saints, and they’re an important part of the Catholic Faith, I decided to create a series for them.

The new series is called Saint Spotlight. 

In this series I’ll highlight a saint for a specific purpose. It will most likely be a saint whose feast is celebrated in the current month.

I’ll describe the life of the saint and provide interesting information that I find.

I’ll choose saints from different time periods and walks of life, some well-known and some obscure.

Today I’ll present a saint I recently learned about: Frances Xavier Cabrini.

Names

Today, September 12th is the Memorial of the Most Holy Name of Mary.

I’m taking a break from the Lourdes Series to write about something connected to this day: names.

I’ve recently become interested in this topic. (So much so that I keep an ongoing list of names that I like, and there are enough on the list for a small army!)

I enjoy learning the meaning of names. I also enjoy hearing about how they are chosen.

First, I’ll briefly explain the feast.

Then, I’ll share an explanation of the importance of names.

Finally, I’ll provide personal tips for choosing names.
