Saints for Our Times/Liturgical Season

Posted on Apr 25, 2020 02:09 PM by Rethwisch, Maria Catherine
Dear Families,
You may enjoy learning about the saints together during this time! I have listed a few saints connected to illness and epidemics. There are also many sources for a daily saint! It's good to remember our heavenly friends are with us right now, while we are physically separated from each other, they are spiritually close and present.
May: Month of Mary!
Pope Francis is encouraging us to pray the Rosary during May to stay united in Our Lady and Our Lord!: 
Saint of the Day:  
Patron Saints of the Plague
St. Roch (saint who cared for the sick during one of the plagues in Europe)
St. Aloysius Gonzaga (young Jesuit who caught the plague while caring for the sick)
St. Catherine of Siena (nursed in the hospitals during the plague in Siena, so great to ask for her powerful prayers at this time of illness!)
Newsletter from Dominican Sisters (has a couple of articles and links on St. Catherine)
St. Bernadette/Our Lady of Lourdes
St. Therese Lisieux
St. Charles Borromeo
