I am probably wrong in questioning the answer given by an apologist (and will probably be ignored, if not expelled) but the answer that Michelle Arnold gave
to the person asking about a patron saint for diabetes was shocking. Comparing the lethal injection used to murder St. Maximillian Kolbe
with the life-saving injections that some
diabetics use is stunning.
Rather, diabetics should pray to St. Paulina do Coracao Agonizante de Jesus
who was a diabetic and cared for sick sisters in her order. She died in 1942 at Priranga, Brazil, of complications from diabetes and was canonized in 2002 by Pope John Paul II in Rome.
