12. some favorites of mine
St. Luke---my favorite of all the writers in the Bible. Very well educated and a compassionate doctor who journeyed all of the ancient world helping St. Paul spread The Word.

St. Padre Pio---A man who was truly touched by the Hand of God. There is no other explanation for the countless miracles associated with him.

St. Alphonsus---The founder of the Order of the Most Holy Redeemer, the Redemptorists and Doctor of the Church. I live in a Redemptorist Parish and I am a big fan of these guys. Their selflessness and work on behalf of the poor in my area is without peer.

The Cappadocian Fathers---Basil the Great, Gregory of Nyssa and Gregory of Nazianzus, three of the most important theologians of the early Church.

St. Andrew---the first called of the Apostles and brother of St. Peter. I wear a Saint Andrew medal around my neck and often ask him to pray for me.
