Thank You, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seaton
For favors received

When I finish my Rosary, I have my own personal little Litany of the Saints who I ask for their intercession and thank for favors received. I don't really know why, but I recently started asking St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton to pray for our daughter, Elizabeth. I don't know why I felt the need to, I just did.

So anyhow, no more than a couple of days after I asked St. Elizabeth for her intercession, our daughter was involved in an auto accident, pictured below.


My Elizabeth was seated in the right back seat, and walked away with just a couple of bruises. Who says Saints don't intercede for us? Thanks again, St Elizabeth.

By the way, it wasn't until about she was 10, did my wife and I realize than our daughter's birthday just so happens to be on St Elizabeth's Feast Day. Oh, and by the way, it was while my wife (a convert from Episcopalianism) was teaching at a Catholic school... in Maryland.

Coincidence? I think not. Take my word for it, the Saints watch out for us.

The saints and our Guardian Angels (I think mine is white-haired and slugging back vodka-and-valium cocktails while checking the small-print of the contract given to him by the Almighty when I was conceived... he's had to get me out of so many scrapes!)

It's wonderful your daughter was protected like that. Someone told me recently that the Holy Spirit actually names us. That's why it takes parents so long to decide on the "perfect" name. Don't know if there's any truth to that, but it sounds good to me :)

Thank the Good Lord your daughter's okay, Cavey. Spoil her, hug her, and if it's embarassing, hug her some more! :)
