Athanasius has tagged me for this important question: If I should make it to sainthood, what picture would I want on my holy card, and of what causes would I want to be patron?
I totally want to pick the green-skinned picture on this blog's title bar! Seems vaguely inappropriate, though. This baby picture I posted a few months back might do it.
Or I might appear to be a medieval saint if I use this picture from a Halloween party a few years ago. Unless the hair and black cat familiar suggest a medieval witch instead...
A few years ago I wore that dress to a Reformation Day performance put on by a Christian elementary school, in which the students celebrated Protestantism in poetry and skit. Even as a Protestant I was a bit nonplussed by the ten-year-old narrator's vehemence as he explained in the introduction how Luther and friends led Northern Europe from DARKNESS! and HERESY! into the marvelous light, but otherwise I thought it a fine play for kids to do (mea maxima culpa). But about the costume, it wasn't so strange to be wearing it because Reformation Day is October 31 and many people were going with the medieval theme. In fact that was the problem-- another girl at the performance was wearing my same medieval princess dress, and it is so embarrassing when that happens. :)
What cause to be patron of? I think... people who have a hard time figuring out God's will.
