ABOVE: On view just in time for the feast of St. Joseph on Monday is this new carving in alabaster of the Saint with the Child Jesus, by Rosamund Fletcher, F.R.B.S. This carving is an idea which Miss Fletcher has had in mind for some time and its final "home" has still to be decided.
RIGHT: A cave-hermitage, reputed to be where St. Patrick studied for his mission to Ireland, is attracting pilgrims to Marmoutier, near Tours in France. Sacred Heart nuns are in charge of the shrine. St. Patrick is said to have come to Tours to study under St. Martin. Tomorrow, St. Patrick's Day, marks the close of the Patrician Year, the fifteenth centenary of the reputed date of Patrick's death in 461.
