Der Tommissar has a very hypothetical suggestion for the patron saint of bloggers, that is if Pontius Pilate had converted and become a saint. Now I can imagine a modern day Pontius pontificating and saying in reply.
"What I have written, I have written and if you don’t like it get your own blog."
I’m still going with St. Jerome, but Pontius Pilate can be the patron for many blogs where sophistry is common. In fact Pilate would be great as the patron for the MSM. Question the authenticity of forged documents – well what is truth?
Well, my Irish priest confessor (also known as, that poor priest who puts up with me) has just let me know that apparently PP is venerated by the Ethiopians.
So he’s got that goin’ for him.
I thought St. Isidore of Seville was the patron saint of the internet-elect.
According to various pseudigraphical accounts, Pilate was converted before being put to death by Vespasian.On the strength of these, he appears in various Eastern calendars.
As for me and my blog, it’s St. Jerome and St. Maximilian Kolbe. The former for his sheer attitude, and the latter for his use of modern technologies for getting the word out.
you are right. I found it either on catholic.com or EWTN.com. St. Isidore is the patron saint of internet users. I used to have the prayer you’re supposed to pray before using the internet, but not anymore. I’m sure it’s retrievable, though.
I’ve never heard of Pontius Pilate repenting before. Not saying that it didn’t happen, I just never heard of it.
Whenever the MSM wants to publish a “fake but accurate” news story, he’s the right patron!
