Dear Micki:

I was absolutely sure, when I entered in your blog this morning, that I would find a holycard of Saint Agnes.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece with us.

Meldelen - What a special Saint she is! Here is last year's post. Not sure if you saw her here also. Enjoy......http://thewindowshowsitall.blogspot.com/2008/01/st-agnes-feast-day.html (I can't make this clickable so I guess you will have to cut and paste.)

Hi Micki,
I have a little question about your 2009 Patron Saint, St. Genevieve. For Confirmation, we were to select a saint's name and I chose Jennifer, of which there is no such saint. The nuns allowed it because they said the the name is associated with Guenevere.

But the nick name for Guenevere is "Gwen" and the nick name for Genevieve is "Jenny". Long story why I chose the name, but it was allowed by the nuns. Now I'm thinking that my confirmation saint is really Genevieve.....what do you think?

Thanks!

Bella Vita - I never heard of that dilema before. I'm thinking that what the ear hears would make more sense that Jennifer would have Genevieve as a patron saint more so than Guenevere. I think I'd just pick which saint's history meant more to me and then I'd chose her as my patron. OR...just keep them both.

Thank you, Mickie, for pointing me to last year's post. It is also delightful, that holycard :)

Micki,

What GREAT advice! I'm going to do just that: read up on both saints and then select the one that I need the most. . . but then, two can help me more in this journey, can't they? :)

Thanks for taking the time to reply too!
