Last Tuesday, I got as far as Saint Juan Diego on my list of Roman Catholic Saints. According to the traditional account, the original image of Our lady of Guadalupe miraculously appeared on the cloak of Juan Diego, on the hill of Tepeyac near Mexico City on December 12, 1531. Apparently there are over 10,000 Roman Catholic Saints and a longer list for the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Communions. I have successfully written 510 saint’s names on the painting, The Resurrection Tree.
The final Saint’s name was Zygmunt Gorazdowski. I found a brief write-up on this blog and really have enjoyed reading some articles on The Black Cordelias’ wordpress as they share a many-faceted perspective on the Catholic Religion, along with good humour and extensive research. God really DOES have to have a sense of humour! I know that on the wall there are three spelling errors and also the incorporation of three Eastern Orthodox Saints…I dare anyone to find these! :0)
