The initial premise: What picture do you think would be on your Holy Card if you were to be canonized, and of what would you be the Patron Saint?
Very interesting question, especially considering that I'll be fortunate to make it to Purgatory.
But, if God wills it and I scrape up enough humility to cooperate with God's Grace, sure Sainthood COULD happen. (Stop laughing!)
IF...really big IF..well, this is what I'd like on my Holy Card (never mind the tombstone...):
And, because there isn't one, the Patroness of Claims Adjusters and Insurance Investigators, and maybe by extension Insurance Agents as well. (Suffered 5 years in Insurance; believe me, a patron saint is needed! Fr. Ciszek is a frontrunner for that position, though.)
And, clearly, the Patroness of the Long-Winded.

Oh, and one other facet that you HAVE to pass on: What do YOU think the person who tagged you would be the Patron Saint of? (grammatically incorrect statement, I know!) Because there's nothing like humility...if the friend you tag disagrees with your self-assessment, this is their chance to get in a slam or a compliment! The result reflects upon the virtue of the taggee....and the sense of humor in the tagger!
I got this idea from a friend of a few years ago; she used to call me the "Patron Saint of Eyes" because she wore contacts, as did I, and so I always had saline or something she needed. Always. Whenever R. was suffering, I had what she needed. (No offense to St. Lucy!) When I was in college, friends joked that I drove the "Bat Car" because...should disaster arise, the remedy was almost always in my trunk, or glove box, etc. Ideas for the rest of you as you ponder where this Meme might go...
As no one tagged me, I'm exempt from this one...it would be challenging, but fun to come up with the patron sainthood of my fellow bloggers!
And be Saints! (I need people to emulate...)
