I got a reply from her. "The saint that chose you, Rocks, is St. John the Discalced, 12/15! "
She claims in her email that she believes that "there are no mistakes and the saint really chooses you!" Well, St Faustina and her order did pick saints at random, so this might have some validity to it but unless we know this woman's methods, I will not take this with a lot of seriousness.
She told me years ago that basically what she does is she prays and then picks a piece of paper (I assume she closes her eyes) with a saint name on it. Now with that said I will say with regard to the latest saints she picked there is an amazing coincidence with each one.
St. Blaise was chosen for a close relative of mine who has been suffering from reoccurence of strep throat and St. Blaise is the patron of throats;
St. mary of Egypt was chosen for another family member who has been away from the church for a LONG time, and this saint's patronage is "penitent women".
Blessed William Horne was chosen for another relative who is episcopalian (spelling?) but coming into the church, William Horne was a catholic monk who was persecuted and martyred under Henry the 8th, the head of the Anglican church!!!
I have been praying for an increase of the grace of Charity, and Mother Teresa chose me.
Also, my father who is battling cancer, a very deadly cancer, was chosen by Blessed Caroline who loved to assist the elderly and sick when she was alive.
Wow!!!!! This is amazing to me and it shows that God is so involved in EACH of our lives and knows every little part of it.
Anyway, this is just my two cents.
