Step one: Go to this link and find your wedding date.
Step two: See whose feast day you’re getting married on!
My weddingbee wedding date is a fakey (I love me some privacy on the internet) but I think it’s safe to reveal that we are actually getting married on the feast of St. Teresa of Avila.
I love St. Teresa – she’s the one who, after going through a particularly tough time, said “Lord, if this is how You treat Your friends, it’s no wonder You have so few.”

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: Solanus Casey is awesome!!! I want to name my first born son Solanus or Casey after him but Fiance won’t go for it 🙂 Basically he was this American Franciscan priest who lived in Detroit until 1957. He had a really hard time in seminary and only barely scraped by. He was considered too stupid to do anything but be the porter for the monastery (basically, the doorman).For 20 years, that was his role – doorman. He wasn’t even allowed to hear confessions, he was considered so slow.
In this role he met people from all walks of life – bishops, rich people, poor people, desperate people coming to the monastery for help, prayer, or comfort. He bacame famous for his great compassion and for curing people. The “stupid priest” attained holiness greater than most people can ever dream of.
I believe when he died his body was found to be incorrupt – he didn’t decay. Like St. Bernadette, who saw the vision fo the Immaculate Conception. He was an amazing guy! About 20,000 people attended the funeral.
