If You Could Choose A Religious Name For Yourself


Recommended Posts

Ave Maria? I have never heard of that being a Baptismal name before! What a beautiful name! If I were to have kids I would definetly name one that!

There is a thread on this but ok, I'll bite again.

Sr. Mary Peter of the Passion
For my home parish(Please pray for it, we are down to ONE Mass with visiting priests) and to suffer for souls.

Sr. Mary Margaret of the Sacred Heart
For my devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Sr. Mary Bernadette of the Infant Jesus
I love the saint and the Infant Jesus

or any combination of the above.

But that is up to our Lord what he wishes to call me when I become 'engaged' to him :saint:

Sister John of the Cross :))
(because I've read a lot of his writings and in my own personal way can relate to what he has written)
