How Old Are You?

It has been a long tradition at Saint Benedict Center to study the saints -- not only their individual lives but also groups of saints by theme.

How many canonized doctors are there? How many brother-and-sister (sibling) saints are there? Name the canonized foundresses of religious orders. Name the boy saints who died under the age of twenty.

Such trivia teaches us about the lives of our Catholic heroes. We get to know them and love them by way of a game.

So, the game for today is: Find the saint who died at your age. Learn something new about your saint-for-the-year. Befriend your saint and ask him (or her) for special help and favors. You only have one year in which to make the most of this special patron before you will be on to a new one. Don't waste your big chance!
