2. What is your middle name?
No. But I will talk about how I chose a patron saint when I was a kid.
All Roman Catholics do this leading up to confirmation (I think). Mine is Bernadette who saw a vision of aquero (technically means ‘that’ (!) but assumed/believed to be Mary) 18 times, was told to go to a place and drink of the water, and which is now the healing waters of Lourdes. Reading the wiki article now that I’m a recovering Catholic is fascinating. Like how cruel is it that she found the waters, but didn’t benefit from them (she was sick all her life and died young)?
