All Hallow's Eve...

It's quite the perfect weather and mood for Halloween.
Tomorrow we celebrate All Saint's Day! So happy All Saint's to all of you!

Here's a little bit about St Genevieve, the Saint that my name comes from.

If you want to find out about your patron, you can probably find them here:

Patron Saints Index



When she was seven years old, Genevieve met Saint Germanus of Auxerre on his way to England. Germain befriended her because of her insistence on wanting to live her life for God, and prophesied her future sanctity. She took the veil at age 15. Prophesied invasions and disasters for Paris. Could read consciences and calm the possessed. When Paris was besieged by the Franks, she encouraged its defense, organized prayers for God’s protection of the city, and led an expedition for food to relieve the siege. Caused a church to be built on the tomb of Saint Denis. In 1129, the procession of her relics through Paris is believed to have ended an epidemic.
