St. Martin of Tours

Today we celebrate Bishop Martin, pictured here with a goose.  It's kind of a funny story, actually.  The story goes that Martin was very happy with his monastic life and did not want to be appointed bishop so he hid in a stable.  The geese there made such a racket, that the people were able to find him.  The justice in this story is that it's traditional to eat goose on St. Martin's feast day.

The lacy edge is damaged, but I like the image enough to share it anyway.
