Someone named Chris filled out the quiz on Saturday. His answers were unremarkable, but I figured if I just started typing, a saint would come to mind and I’d be effectively answering and replying to the quiz. And then get back to watching Ari Melber on MSNBC or Anderson Cooper on CNN, two habits I should probably give up for Lent (or so I am told).

It’s a public holiday usually celebrated annually on August 15th, so coinciding with the Assumption of Mary.

We asked a question on Quora today. Since it is National Teachers Week, we wondered who was the best saint for teachers. There are so many choices. So far, Saint John Baptiste de la Salle is "winning," because he has one vote and only one person answered our Quora question so far. Rob really likes Saint Ann/Anne/Anna because the image on the medal has Saint Ann teaching a very young Blessed Virgin Mary as a child, learning how to read. Saint Alice is a nice choice too because she was all about Language Studies, especially Latin. Thomas Aquinas, Thomas More and Ignatius Loyola are fine examples of saints dedicated to learning too.

A very brief note! On Saturday, September 24, 2016, at 9:00 am New Orleans time, I'll be telling my "Close Encounters with Bruce Springsteen" stories on WGSO Radio, 990 on the car dial in New Orleans or streaming live world-wide at WGSO.com - Call in and ask questions or share your Springsteen stories. Answer Rob's lingering question: In the song "For You," on Bruce's "Greetings from Asbury Park," what saint medal is Bruce referencing when he sings:

This is just a short update about the packages we have begun mailing out from the Canonization - we sent out almost 100 yesterday so many could arrive today, tomorrow, or later in the week. However, we basically mailed in order of receipt of your requests and some of you made a few different requests! So, that means you will likely be receiving more than one package. Please give us another week before you think we may have made a mistake with your request, but if that turns out to be the case, just send us an e mail or give us a call and we will get things right.

We are sending a quick update to let you know we are back from our trip to Rome and Assisi. We found so many great items to share. The folks who ordered the free rosaries or ordered a Mother Teresa medal package will be receiving the Saint Teresa of Calcutta rosaries or hand-painted Saint Teresa medals very soon. We expect to be mailing everything on Monday, or if the Arch Angel Gabriel, patron of postal workers gives us a huge boost, this coming Saturday, September 17th.! But, knowing us, it will probably be Monday, September 19th, when they are all ready to be placed in transit. We're working hard to create nice packaging and we think you will be very happy with our teams' handiwork. Thank you, thank you, and thank you, for your kind words or encouragement and patience!

This is Brooks, from SaintsforSinners.com.  I am sending this newsletter on behalf of Rob Clemenz, who is currently in Rome for the Canonization of Mother Teresa, to update you all on this special event and relay news that he has to share with you. He informed me that the Canonization ceremony was an incredible spectacle and when it concluded, "the Pope was reminiscent of Springsteen," circling the large crowd twice, showing some love in the famed pope mobile, as you can see illustrated in the picture below.  There will be more photos to follow in our next newsletter.
