Patron saints

Some other blogs have their own patron saints. I’ve taken the liberty of taking on these saints as the patrons of this blog.

All icons depicted here are believed to be covered by fair use provisions of copyright law.

If you are the author of these works of iconography please advise me if you wish not to have these appear on my blog page and I will remove the images from this page.

Venerable (St.) Brendan of Clonfert (the Navigator) – my namesake

All you iconoclasts can bite me! =P Hehe.

May the prayers of these saints rise with mine like incense to the Holy Trinity.

    Thank you for the great display of icons! As an iconographer and contemporary artist, I especially liked the innovative icon version of Merton!
    GOD bless!
