The Deaths of the Saints

Not for the Faint-Hearted
I was browsing for images of St Blaise today, and stumbled across this surprsing image of the saint. Now, it's not pious iconography, but I'm sure that at least some of my readership will enjoy the Deaths of the Saints blog. (Maybe this comes under the Punk Catholic heading...) If you're not squeamish, you should probably check out St Agatha, St Theobald and St Bartholomew.

St Joan of Arc
More in tune with the Hermeneutic of Continuity, the excellent Matt Alderman has recently completed two images of St Joan of Arc - here and here.

Speaking of stuff that goes under the "Punk Catholic" heading . . .

One of the children I tutor is a Muslim boy who likes hearing stories of the saints, particularly those who died in interesting ways. He is always dissatisfied when I say an otherwise fascinating saint died of nothing but old age or illness.

I think St. Bartholomew and St. Laurence are his current favourites. He will be delighted to hear about St. Blaise! ;)
