week I spent three days in the charming North Yorkshire
And then on the last day a disappointing fact hit me : namely that it might not be OUR St.Felix. And when I got home yesterday I looked in my Book of Saints, and yes, there is not only a fourth century martyr named St.Felix, and the third century St.Felix of Nola, but, a note states, 'There are 66 saints of the name of Felix listed in the Roman martyrolgy.' Oh well.
