30th Sunday Ordinary Time – Time for a new St. Narcissus???

St. Narcissus deuxReally, I had never heard of St. Narcissus, bishop of Jerusalem from the late 2nd century.  How appropriate to discover him yesterday, the 30th Sunday of Ordinary Time.

I wonder whether it would be appropriate to promote the canonization of Narcissus, not the 2nd century bishop of Jerusalem, but the person from classical Greek mythology.  It’s kind of tongue in cheek.  Kinda not.  I wonder whether he might become my patron saint.

This St. Narcissus would be the patron saint of himself.

Like the classical story from Greek mythology, he’d be staring at himself with deep attraction.  He’d wear a black tee-shirt that proclaimed, “ME!” He’d look up only to judge others unfavorably.

Other characteristics?

How might this new St. Narcissus represent our age?

Your thoughts?
