St. John Capistrano Triumphant

Speaking of the holy Franciscan St. John Capistrano (see the excellent post below), I was in Vienna earlier this month and come upon this wonderful sight that you see to the left. It is the pulpit from which the good saint preached the crusade for the defense of Christendom against the Turks. Above the pulpit can be seen the holy Franciscan trampling upon a vanquished Turk, while holding the flag of the crusaders and looking to Heaven for divine succor.

May God send us more such saints and may He protect us still today from the advance of the Mohammedans.

St. John Capistrano, ora pro nobis!
