Welcome to another edition of Saints Monday.  Today, let’s discuss Saint Paul.


Why Saint Paul?  I think my fellow bloggers and writers will relate as he is the Patron Saint of Writers.  He is the Patron Saint of Writers because he contributed many letters to The New Testament.

Have a case of Writer’s block?

Pray to Saint Peter to lift it.

Aren’t you supposed to pray to Patron Saints for challenges you face when the challenge matches their sainthood?

Praying to Saint Anthony who is the Patron Saint of Lost Causes worked when I misplaced one of my thumb drives.  Read the linked column above and you’ll CLEARLY see why I understand it was Saint Anthony who came through.  Some weird serendipity in the column.

Back to Saint Paul:

I wonder of Saint Paul could have been one of the muses.  If you are in the middle of a block, it is sometimes said to ask the muses to help.  Isn’t that one of the things Saints have been known to do?

Hmmmm.  Saints/Muses?  I don’t know.

Just a thought.  My brain sometimes makes these strange connections, especially now that I see connections everywhere.  Speaking of which, Saint Paul’s Feast day is June 29 and June 30.  In the early to mid 1990s when I was writing dark fantasy I attended a yearly writer’s conference and one of the years, the conference wound up going forward on June 29 and June 30.  I wonder now whether the organizers realized this.  Being that the conference was specifically for dark fantasy I have challenge believing the organizers were familiar with Saint Paul.  I wasn’t until I studied him a few weeks ago.

So many times after the fact, I find these connections and they continue to blow my mind.  I understand that since I’m in this paradigm, I should get used to seeing the connections and easily assimilating them.

Doesn’t happen!

Miracles of Saint Paul:
Paul heals a lame man in Lystra.
Paul raised Eutychus from the dead.
Paul healed diseases.

Maybe now you see why I can relate to Saint Paul.  Being a writer myself and seeing the connections as listed above are just a couple of reasons I wanted to include Paul in my “Saints” theme.

If anyone has Saints they relate to I’ll be glad to consider adding them.  Comment below.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
