Holy Card Meme

Is there a Saint for 'putting your foot right in it?' Cos that would be MOI!

My this is a difficult one. I guess my Motto is and always has been 'I prefer the hard Truth over a nice lie.' Or 'Give me Truth or give me nothing.'

The Catholic Church IS the Truth. It is Life. It is Love. It is everything.

I don't know if that qualifies me but I will defend the Teachings of the Catholic Church to the end.

I would choose to be the Patron Saint for those misunderstood because they do not compromise on Truth.

Also for those who forget who tagged them lol.

Thanks Cathy,
