It’s time to play NAME THAT SAINT!
See if you can identify the holy folks below. Â (Hint: look at the symbolism of the objects in the pictures with them.) Â Answers are in the comment box below. Â (And no cheating, people Â — this is a game about saints, after all.)
Ready? Â Here’s #1:
#2: Girl holding a little lamb.
#3: Â No lamb, but lots of armor.
#4: This guy was prominent enough in life to have an official portrait painted of him.
#5: Exterminators could learn a thing or two from this fellow.
#6: What’s she got on that plate?
#7: A more recent saint, obviously — one who experienced a very dark chapter of human history.
#8: Â This saint probably never thought that she’d end up lending her name to pyrotechnics.
