My patron saint for 2013

I actually thought about finding a saint for 2012 early last year..... Never got to do it. I guess I figured I have my all time faves to talk to: Paul, Luke, Clare, Gianna, James
Thanks to the saint generator, it made it fun and exciting to receive a saint --- like a birthday surprise. You won't know who/what you'd get.
And......... To end the suspense, I introduce you:
St. Basil the Great
Whose feast day is today January 2nd

He is a power saint! A doctor of the church. Just how cool is that?
Patronage: Hospital Administrators; Reformers; Russia
From catholic.org
.... a man of vast learning and constant activity, genuine eloquence and immense charity. This earned for him the title of "Great" during his life and Doctor of the Church after his death. Basil was one of the giants of the early Church.


Looks like we are gonna be close this year of faith, St. Basil.
Prayer: St. Basil, may I learn your ways, imitate your charity and love God above all. Pray for me this year 2013. Amen.

Who did you get as your patron saint? Please share below.....
