Widely revered, always respected, but with lessons all too seldom heeded. We look at the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi.
Not a true Saint, but an archangel – we look at Michael, the sword and shield of God and the judge of our souls at Judgement Day.
A lesser known Saint is our #3 – Saint Julian of Norwich. She was an anchoress, a woman whose religious devotion was shown through isolation to a small cell.
Our #4 Saint is Saint Sebastian, a harrowing image of martyrdom when done right and an absolute beast of a man immune to pain in the depictions I prefer because they’re hilarious.
Saint #5 is the most important woman in the Christian tradition – Mary, the mother of Christ. Why is she so important?
A quick look at All Saints’ Day and the phenomenon of Sainthood.
