My name is Rebecca! I had an old blog but I wasn’t really feeling it and so I haven’t blogged in about a year, but I wanted to get back into it. I just needed to figure out the hows, the whys, and direction. (I work in the pro-life movement in my province, so, there is a fair chance that I’ll talk a fair bit about that. It’s rough days down in Atlantic Canada). I’m a revert. Becoming pro-life in university led me back to the Catholic Church and I’m so pleased that it did.
My goal for 2016 is to read 30 books. I read 24 last year and have already read 3 in the last two weeks (2 were re-reads, but they totally count). I’d also like to get back into running and lose some weight (so, I may get into those topics as well)
My Saint for 2016 is St. Catherine of Siena, at least according to Jennifer Fulwiler’s super high-tech and scientific Saints Name Generator. I am excited, I have heard of St. Catherine but I’d love to get to know her better! She was a fighter and I could certainly use her strength. According to Wikipedia her patronage is: against fire, bodily ills, illness, Italy, miscarriages, people ridiculed for their piety, sexual temptation, sick people, sickness. As an aside, I just hit the button again and this time I got St. Maximillian Kolbe who is the patron of the pro-life movement. He’s already one of my favourites.
I’m going to look back at my old blog and I may make an archive of some of my favourite old posts. So, if you are so inclined you can keep an eye out for those.
