The Patron Saint of Bloggers


I just recently learned that St. Paul is the patron saint of bloggers. Since he’s the patron saint of writers that makes sense.  St. Paul is also my patron saint and I took his  name as my confirmation name when I came into the Catholic Church in 2012.

I am writing this post to point out that I will be focusing more on Catholic and pro-life issues in my blogging. It was something I felt led to do earlier this year but I didn’t really get around to doing it properly. I’m feeling the strong call now for that now, so you will see more blogging on Catholic issues here – especially pro-life ones.

St. Paul’s feast day is June 29. Read more in his biography

Prayer to Saint Paul the Apostle

O Glorious Saint Paul, after persecuting the Church you became by God’s grace its most zealous Apostle. To carry the knowledge of Jesus, our divine Savior, to the uttermost parts of the earth you joyfully endured prison, scourgings, stonings, and shipwreck, as well as all manner of persecutions culminating in the shedding of the last drop of your blood for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Obtain for us the grace to labor strenuously to being the faith to others and to accept any trials and tribulations that may come our way. Help us to be inspired by your Epistles and to partake of your indomitable love for Jesus, so that after we have finished our course we may join you in praising him in heaven for all eternity. Amen.
