“Be my image”, God
“When people see you,
they will see me, my daughter.
Be my image,
radiance of my love.”

Why ‘ sponsor’ a ‘saint’?
The great women who went before us, in their own way, prepared the way for the Church to ordain women. In a real sense we are now pursuing a vision which many of them, implictly or explicitly, expressed in their lives.
We know that we can now voice what our ancestors in the past: the ordained women deacons, the martyrs, the medieval leaders and great women of our own era, would want us to express also in their name. By sponsoring a symbolic/representative Christian ‘saint’ of the past, you help us speak on their behalf.
