Not the normal felt banner but then it the LMS's. Who is the other saint? I can see one is St Margaret Clitheroe, who is the other?
I am interested because I helped a young chap get some of his baggage across London in order to join the LMS pilgrimage from Ely to Walsingham, this picture is from Fr Bede Rowe's blog, he is the chaplain. Other bloggers taking part are the Chairman, not a big brother figure but the affable Joe Shaw. There are just 30 on the pilgrimage so far but as the zealous Bones is also there I suspect one or two people from the hedgerows and byways will be constrained to join the throng. It is organised by Juventutem. With so many bloggers we might be able to do this an ePilgrimage.

How was it Charles II described an English summer: two fine days and a thunderstorm.
Here is a picture of last night's sleeping arrangements, it looks like penance to me!

Could that be St Richard Gwyn ( martyred Wrexham 1584)?

I think I can read the words "Richard Gwyn" underneath.

Reading your first two comments I can only say that this is a 'Gwyn-Gwyn' situation.

I promise to say three Hail Marys as a penance for that - and I don't 'welsh' on my promises. (I'll make it five Hail Marys!)

I concur with the other commentators and believe the other saint is Richard Gwyn, layman and martyr.

Some of them ought to be sectioned but it does keep them off the streets.

After NATO gets us involved in a world-wide conflagration there will be a period of full employment so no time for this kind of nonsense.

The second saint is indeed St Richard Gwyn. He and St Margaret Clitherow are the patron saints of the Latin Mass Society. The banner was created by the Guild of St Clare, Oxford, of which I am proud to be the founder, and was completed only days before the pilgrimage took place. It weathered the pilgrimage fairly well, which is a great relief!
