Patron Saint for the Year Devotion
#1
This (below) was posted on AQ, author: St. Benedict.
Actually, the saint is the one who chooses us though. The tradition of letting a saint “pick you,” is not a new one.
St. Faustina participated in this devotion, but it did not originate with her.

St. Benedict Quote:
Each year I participate and help put together the Saint for the Year Devotion This tradition, mentioned by St. Faustina, involves me drawing from a container the name of a saint for each person to be a special patron for them. Over the past several years that I have done it, there have been hundreds of participants, devotional lives enkindled, and many connections between the saints and the participants.

This year I drew St. Joachim as my patron.

The drawing takes place daily through the end of January after the recitation of Vespers and the Litany of the Saints.
