Patron Saints of Europe.

Standard

I was looking  for a symbol that could represent Europe besides the EU flag. On my quest for this I came across the following Saints listed below … I guess I was thinking of Athena, patroness of Athens while I was searching for a “unified Europe symbol” I couldn’t really find much besides what I’ve listed ↓

  1. Saint Benedict.
  2. Saint Catherine of Siena.
  3. Saint Ansgar. The patron saint of Scandinavia.
  4. St. Teresa Benedicta of The Cross.
  5. Bridget of Sweden.
  6. Saint Cyril & Saint Methodius
  7. Saint Scholastica, the twin sister of Saint Benedict.
  8. Jan Hus. A very interesting read about one of the “predecessors” of Martin Luther.
  9. Christina, Queen of Sweden. An interesting read about the “tomboy Queen” who converted to Catholicism & abdicated her throne.
  10. Eternal King and Patron Saint of Norway: Saint Olaf.
  11. Saint Magnus Erlendsson. A patron Saint of Norway.
  12. Religious Retreats.
  13. Croatian Hand Tattoos.
  14. What the KKK and the & Catholic church have in common.
  15. Odin.
