Let the celebration begin!!! :clap::clap::clap:
No problem. I stole it myself!I had to say "a wreath of Franklins" outloud before I got it. Terrible, Andrea, just terrible (I'm gonna steal it).
Off topic: does anyone know why the Catholic Church sometimes removes saints? They do that every now and then and add new ones too :think:Despite being removed from the liturgical calendar of the roman rite in 1969, she is still celebrated by Orthodox Christians and Anglicans.
In this case, it was because there weren't enough documentation on when, how and where the person actually lived (or became a saint). On general basis I do not know.Off topic: does anyone know why the Catholic Church sometimes removes saints? They do that every now and then and add new ones too :think:
Yay! Rebel feminist saints!because whatever you write, holds in Greece.
Actually, she is usually pictured to hold the sword or a chalice and a sword.
She is protectress of explosions and anything related to artillery, but also of women (i think of rebel women or so). In my homeland, in the North East of Greece, we believe that weather gets worse since dec 4th and we also prepare that soup with grains (believed to be an ancient custom related to earth goddesses, like Dimitra/Mother Earth).
Moreover, many roma tribes in Greece have her as a protectress (when they have not Virgin Mary/the Great Lady as their main Saint).
I did not know that this was so common in other countries. Oh, i am not surprised her celebration was suspended -she is too feminist and pagan for a christian saint...
