Starting the New Year Off Right!
I’ve been told of a New Year’s tradition that is popular in monasteries and convents. Every year, the monks and nuns get together and draw the names of saints from a hat. These become their patrons of the year, about whom they will learn and for whose intercession they will pray.
So I spent some time to program the following for you. There are 130 possible saints. Enjoy and share your results in the comments!

Happy New Year,
PS – I got St. Bede the Venerable for 2012!
PS – I got St. Kateri Tekakwitha for 2013!
PS – St. Ignatius of Loyola for 2014!
