Saint Simon!

Well clearly this isn't me, but Abi came back from Staffordshire with an amazing present for me from Chris and Parge. A 19th century stained glass pane of Saint Simon!! Bought at auction and restored, not sure where it originated but 'we' think it's English from a ?demolished Church.

You may be interested to note the following when I googled Saint Simon the Zealot (zealot, hmm is that me???!!!):

"he the apostle called Simon Zelotes, Simon the Zealot, in Luke 6:15 and Acts 1:13; and Simon Kananaios or Simon Cananeus ("Simon" signifying שמעון "hearkening; listening", Standard Hebrew Šimʿon, Tiberian Hebrew Šimʿôn), was one of the most obscure among the apostles of Jesus. Little is recorded of him aside from his name" 

Thanks Chris and Parge - A truly amazing present - lets hope it doesn't go to my head!!!
