Indeed, our illustrious ancestors were even present when, in 1096, Pope Urban II fired the starting pistol and launched the First Crusade. Amongst the Templars, Hospitallers, Vintners and Victuallers that set out on that (frankly foolish) adventure were our proud forefathers - and, fluttering proudly before them, they bore the dazzling (not to say slightly garish and marginally tawdry) banner of their patron saint, whose day today is.
This is the feast day of...
St Christina The Astonishing.
(It really is.)
So I hope that, in accordance with the tenets ordained by long tradition, everyone has done something truly Astonishing today.
If not, there’s still time….
If you think that what you have done was more Astonishing than was strictly necessary or even ritually desirable, get in touch and tell us all what it was.
