Saints for Early May

As I point out in the note on the Martyrology post earlier, since Ven Pope Pius XII's reform of the Roman Calendar in 1955, tomorrow is the Feast of St Joseph the Worker. I am not absolutely certain of the date of the book from which these illustrations are taken, but the artist was an Anglo-Catholic, and the Book of Common Prayer still has the Feast of Ss Philip & James on 1 May.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
