I chose St. Jude because he is the patron saint of hope. Hope is really important to have even in the darkest of times. I always want to be optimistic and find happiness in the little things.-

My confirmation saint is St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and I chose her because I admired how inspirational she was and how she always had a positive outlook.

Next time something doesn't go my way, I'll try my hardest to look at it as Elizabeth would have. -
Which of the gifts of the Holy Spirit do you think you need the most at this point in your life? Wisdom, Understanding, Right Judgement, Knowledge, Courage, Reverence, and/or Wonder and Awe?
I think I need Wonder and Awe most in my life right now. When I'm having a bad day it is easy to get upset and look at the things I don't have. Sometimes when this happens, you can forget to look at all God has given you and all He has created. I think it is important to focus on the wonderful life God has created for you during those hard times and be thankful for the things you do have. -
