St. Maurice

Postby Harry Wilson » Sat Mar 24, 2018 1:43 pm

Today while on vacation in Milan, Italy, we visited the church of San Maurizio al Monastero Majjiore in Milan, where there are three large and prominent paintings of some antiquity of St Maurice, the patron saint off the infantry. A number of us are or probably will be members of the Order of St Maurice. He is painted holding a palm branch, the symbol of martyrdom, and a sword. In one he has his troops with him. Interesting
