She makes people feel good about their own persona and sanctity (if you will ) of mental heath and behavior.

She'll also have to die a horrible death if she's to become a saint

Since my middle name is Anne, I wanted to check out St. Anne Line. SHE gets arrested and executed for harboring a priest in her house in London. I know Elizabeth was more tolerant of other faiths than her sister Mary, but I am distressed to read of this incident.

PS The priest she was harboring by the way didn't get caught.

* St. Hermes and Adrian
* St. Leo Luke

So why Wales?
