I first came across St. Nuno Álvares Pereira at Whitefriars Church in Dublin, where I was attending Mass last summer at this time. I would go to Adoration as well, and one day, I noticed the Flag of St. George in the window and was intrigued by this saint.

But, there is a painting of him done in his lifetime, which is rare for a saint. He was a warrior as well as a Carmelite. I love this saint.

He was a soldier, a husband, a father and a Carmelite.

There is a fantastic blogspot dedicated to him here.

More on the saints of Malta, all repeats, will appear here in the next few days.
