Who is your favorite Saint? Why?
I am curious if other Christians/Catholics have a favorite Christian saint? Who is it and why?
St. Nick because he brings toys for free and even if you don't believe in him he won't send you to hell.
Toys are always great. I didn't know there were other saints that did send you to hell. Most christians I know believe only God has that power.
I bet more people believe in heaven than hell. Its all part of the make believe. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,173838,00.html
There are so many that I truly would like to mention; however, if I must select one it would be the Carmelite, St. John of The Cross. His devotion to the brown scapular (of St. Simon Stock revelation) has been so beneficial in my particular life... I also cherish the Salvador Dali painting depicting St. John's vision; it is so beautiful.
I will end with this amazing revelation from St. John of the Cross; "In tribulation immediately draw near to God with confidence, and you will indeed receive strength, enlightenment and instruction." I have found this to be indeed true.
Now that this question was raised, I'd like to leave a comment. John the Baptist was the least of the saints, yet he baptized Jesus. When St. Paul says if one wants to be the master, he or she must first be the servant. That makes St. Paul the best saint in the Bible.
I always love the life and story of Saint Francis of Assisi, Italy.
He came from a very rich family, went away because of God's call, lived a very poor man, built a church and because a saint.
Nobody does that today, of course!
St. OvercommercializedChristianHolidaySeason. Because I can be a good, law-abiding over-consumer.
Saint Francis of ASSISSI because of his humility, childlike persona, his detachment from anything material.I will also mention Mother Teresa but she is not canonized as a saint yet although , to me, she is already a saint ,canonized or not.Why Mother Teresa? -because ,it takes a special someone to do what she did and she did not do it alone.She had some help up above.She was not your average regular Joe mentality.She is the ultimate saint to me because I live in her generation. I witnessed her work and I feel her spirit and presence when I volunteer at her Missionaries.

The book of Revelation; Is it already happening?I have been reading and listening to the book since I woke up today -- My question is, has some of it already taken place? If so, where were we at right now? I know we haven't reached the mark of the beast. I believe that to be some form of technology...

How do you interpret the second death in the book of Revelations?It is found 4 times in Revelations and as I understand it, it is symbolic for the second desruction of the temple and the Jewish religion a second time at the hands of Rome. The first time was by babylon. It is the spiritual death of...
