Why did you choose this saint?: He is the patron saint of desperate cases, and I saw myself as a desperate case when I was in high school. I entrusted my spiritual life to his intercession so that he would lead me to a deeper relationship with our Blessed Lord and his holy Church.

Would you rather walk, run, bike or swim? Walk

Would you rather cook or go out to eat? Go out to eat (I can’t cook, sadly.)

Would you rather vacation at the beach or in the mountains? I do not enjoy the beach and I am not a huge fan of mountains, either; but it if I had to choose, I’d rather a vacation in the mountains.

What else would you like to share? I am a triplet – two sisters in addition to me. I enjoy classical music, with my favorite composer being Johann Sebastian Bach, and I also enjoy Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony. My favorite saints include St. Therese of Lisieux, Pope St. Pius X, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Thomas More.
