    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.

      I believe his Feast day is this Friday; 12/14/12.

    My favorite is the heavy metal band, "Armored Saint."

      I've never seen this band.  Then again I've never seen a Saint or miracle.

    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.

      Yes St. Paul is a great saint.

    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!

      Never would have guessed that your favorite was francis of assissi wink.  And I wouldn't say nobody does that today. Agnes Bojaxhiu was born to a quite rich Albanian family, and then served the poorest of the poor as Mother Teresa.

    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.

      Those are two of my favorites as well.  I agree with you that Mother Teresa is extra cool for being a saint in our own times.  I wouldn't be surprised if we see her canonized within the next few years.
