Beatification

This week we’re counting our blessings and saying our prayers as we take a look at the tales behind some of the patron saints and their language. From martyrs to miracles and from sanctity to sanctuary we unpick the blessed language of those who have been canonised. But if all that sounds a bit holier-than-thou, don’t worry because there’s still plenty of time to enjoy idio-repulsive belfies, tuck into a cannon of beef, and find out why you might not want to find yourself needing to pray to St Julian the Hospitaller. A Somethin’ Else production.
