St Philip Neri at the English College

St Philip Neri, the "Second Apostle of Rome", who lived opposite the Venerable English College at S. Girolamo della Carità, used to greet the English seminarians with the words "Salvete Flores Martyrum" (Hail! flowers of the Martyrs) because so many would return to recusant England and be martyred! This window from the chapel of the Venerable English College shows St Philip greeting the seminarians. Today, 26th May, is St Philip Neri's feast day, and my sermon can be read here.
