Who's the patron saint of tagging?

Tripp has passed on the gift of the following meme:

Name your four favorite saints, your favorite blessed saint, and the person you think should be canonized.

I don't have an icon corner like the Anglobaptist, but...
Favorite saints:
  • Aidan (biblical scholar and preacher, and the subject of the window across from my favorite seat in the seminary chapel).
  • Cecelia (patron of music; someone has to help me with all those tunes in my head)
  • Jerome (what's not to love about a book saint?)
  • Mary Magdalen (apostle to the apostles, and for two thousand years sufferer from a bad rep-- being conflated with a sinful woman)
Then there's Blessed Catherine Kasper, founder of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. I worked with and learned a great deal of respect for members of the order, back in Indiana.

Who should be canonized? Hard to say. However, I'm a believer in every day saints, so one that comes to mind is Jo-- the sweet woman who for more than 60 years has been the organist at Our Saviour, smiling cheerfully and bringing light to the lives of everyone she meets. If you have a Jo in your life, you are blessed indeed.

Now, as to tags: how about Rev. Ref, Mary, Micah and Andrew? Yes, that will do.
