Are you a single Catholic? Meet Your Match Today [close]

Single Living

In 2009, inspired by St. Thomas Aquinas’ desire to honor his patroness (St. Agnes) with a feast, Jeremiah Begley planned an elaborate meal to share with friends on the saint’s feast day (which is today).

But the single college student also had a secondary motivation. Jeremiah secretly hoped that his menu of Thomistic-themed items—including “Fides et Ratio Formaggio e Verdura,” or faith-and-reason cheese and vegetables—would impress a fellow philosophy major, a young woman whom he happened to like.

It did.

These days, Jeremiah, now 23 and a high-school Latin and religion teacher, lives alone in Washington, D.C. But he’s right around the corner from that very woman, Elizabeth, now his fianceé (full disclosure: she’s also my sister!) Of course their common interests and shared Catholic faith also helped bring them together, but she continues to enjoy his cooking, themed or otherwise.
