Christine Therese (alias Fin Pym) here. Over here at the Fire of the Spirit Blog, we’ve decided to start a tag that will run amongst us bloggers so you guys can get to know us better. This will be fun and I’m really excited!
So, let’s hop to the questions!
WHO IS YOUR PATRON SAINT AND WHY?
I’m going to go classic rebellious Catholic, because how does one even have just one patron saint?!?! I’ll try to keep this as short as possible.
My main patron saints are St. Catherine of Siena, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Philomena, St. Francis de Sales, St. Raphael, and St. Joan of Arc.
The first two because they’re my patron saints by name.
St. Philomena is my confirmation saint.
St. Francis de Sales is patron saint of writers—self explanatory.
St. Raphael—okay, I was obsessed with the Book of Tobit when I was a child, and it remains very close to me today. It’s just so awesome!
St. Joan of Arc is amazing. I love her story, and I look up to her.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO EAT ON FRIDAYS IN LENT?
I’m not a picky eater, but I love seafood. And fishball soup (yo, I’m Asian).
IF YOU COULD ASK GOD ONE QUESTION, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Can you make sure that I get to Heaven? Because that would be really great.
(I kinda know the answer to that but still. Also, let me just say, you can always ask God whatever question you want to ask Him, anywhere, anytime. 😉 )
WOULD YOU RATHER HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS OR STAY INSIDE READING A BOOK ON A FRIDAY NIGHT?
That’s hard. I’m a pretty extreme introvert, but I really only get to hang out with my friends on Sundays when we see each other at church. And, it’s hard for us to meet up since we’re not all in the same city.
So I’ll have to go with hanging out with friends.
WHAT IS THE LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Big Hero 6!! But I wish it was Captain America: Civil War… Gotta see that movie a.s.a.p. No spoilers, guys. Be nice.
WHAT IS A CAREER CHOICE THAT YOU ARE THINKING OF?
I definitely want to become a published author of several novels, but I also want to get my hands into herbalism/natural medicine. I’m pleased to say that I’ve at least sort of gotten started on both. That’s off the top of my head.
IF YOU COULD INVITE ANY TWO PEOPLE (LIVING OR DEAD) TO COFFEE, WHO WOULD THEY BE?
Ugh. This is such a hard question, I almost hate it.
Including Jesus and Mary, I would say Jesus and Mary.
Excluding Jesus and Mary but including all the known Saints… Well. I’m already screaming in my head at the multitude of choices.
(Five minutes later)
St. John the Apostle, and Pope St. John Paul II.
Yep, I’m already regretting my decisions because of so many other amazing people.
But, excluding all the known Saints, Jesus, and Mary, I’d really like to meet with J.R.R. Tolkien (all hail the Professor!) and… I want to say C.S. Lewis, but I also would like to meet Fr. Mike Schmitz, and other fantastic people. Grrr.
Why only two people?! (Maddie, this is all your fault XD)
ANYWAY! Those are all the questions, sadly. Now that I’m done, time to tag someone…
I shall tag… Mary W!
By the way, if you readers want to answer some of these questions yourself, go ahead. We’d love to see what your answers are! Any other comments and questions are also most welcome.
