Saint Maurus and Saint Placidus

On the calendar of saints, this is the memorial of Saint Maurus and of Saint Placidus, followers of Saint Benedict, and monks in his monastery. There is a wonderful story about them, told over at VultusChristi. Here are stained glass windows of the two saints, from Saint Benedict in Richmond, Virginia. They are not large windows. Saint Maurus is in the narthex, and Saint Placidus is by the stairs going to the choir loft. I love the peace the artist shows on their faces. Saints Maurus and Placidus, pray for us!
