Saints and Blesseds
My "pick" for Lent yesterday was to research a little known saint (little known to me anyway) and during the course of my research I came across a great website - Saints and Blesseds Page. This site is filled with information on unusual and lesser known saints. I chose to research St Lidwina whom I had heard of but knew little about. She is the patron saint of ice skaters and the chronically ill. Her story is fascinating! Thomas a Kempis witnessed a few of her miracles and was so fascinated by this saint that he wrote a book about her that you can read online.
