Montjoie Saint Denis!

It is the feast of St. Denis the martyr, whose name was the battle-cry of France. Montjoie Saint-Denis referred to the oriflamme, the ancient banner of the kings of France. Share

Elena, do you do memes? I've tagged you for the Holy Card Meme--but it's completely voluntary, of course! =)
