Last Words of Saint Louis IX, King of France, 1270

A short video about the advice St Louis IX gave his son as he lay dying in North Africa on Crusade. He was a Franciscan Tertiary, one of the greatest kings of the Middle Ages, and a  Saint worthy of emulation.

From one of my favourite YouTube channels, Real Crusades History.

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.
