Father Fox over at Bonfire of the Vanities taggedthe first five who read his meme, and since there were 4 comments, I figured I would be number 5 and respond. Plus, it's darn neat anyway.
If you were invited to a Halloween/ All Saints Day Costume Party, which saint would you dress up as and why? (The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, is not an option.)
Hmmm, I would have to go as one of the martyrs so I have a chance at winning original costume - perhaps St. Sebastian with arrows sticking out of me or St. Lawrence with a bottle of BBQ sauce.
Okay, but to be serious, I would dress up as St. Joan of Arc because (a) I'm female, and (b) she was my aptroness long ago when I wore a uniform in Uncle Sam's Army.
Which saint or other person would accompany you to the party?
St. Thomas More, so we could stand around and complain about clients and court appearances. Lawyers love doing that.
What famous quote would help others identify you?
Well, if I'm going as St. Joan of Arc, I suppose it would have to be, "Is it hot in here or is it just me?"
Describe your costume.
Full armor, geared for battle.
Which movie or film best depicts the life of this saint?
Passion de Jeanne D'Arc, filmed in 1928.
What is your favorite book written about this saint or that he or she has written?
I don't know what has been written about St. Joan of Arc, but if we're talking about St. Thomas More, in addition to A Man for All Seaons, there is also The King's Good Servant But God's First by James Monti.
I tag anyone who aspires to sainthood.
