Saint Facts

Still sick but I made time to post two random facts about saints:

Adolf of Osnabruck (1185-1224) – Bishop of Osnabruck in 1216. Had the misfortune of being the saint that Hitler was named after.

If saint on horseback slaying a dragon is riding a white horse, it is St. George. If red, it is St. Demetrius. If the saint is riding another colored horse, it isn’t Catholic.
