A Narrow Escape

I learned today that had I been born Italian, my name would most likely have been Immaculata, because that's the feast day.

I consulted a Feast Day List published by the Catholic Church and learned that, apart from it being the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception, there are only 3 saints on my feast day and they are all pretty obscure.

So..... something to be thankful for. I could have been Immaculata Patapia Macaria.

Though, I must admit the picture is working for me.

Or, Immaculata Boadicca?

IIt has a certain ring to it, especially if you visualize this picture with a metal breastplate, shield and helmet.
