Historically Used In an Exclusive Sense, This Blog Aims to Explore What God's Up To Inside & Outside the Institutional Church

Now that we’ve all enjoyed our chocolates for St. Valentine (who was a Christian martyr not to be confused with Cupid the pagan god of desire and eros), tomorrow’s saint is Blessed Angelus de Scarpetti an Augustinian friar born in 1254. He was a missionary to England where he preached and built monasteries. Known as a miracle worker, he once intervened on behalf of a man condemned to death; the authorities ignored him, and executed the man; Angelus then promptly brought the man back to life.  Not sure how to make a Hallmark moment of that or if it will sell flowers but I’m sure it might match a niche market somewhere!
