Weekend Kneeler Jeopardy



Not to disappoint Ray, even though he already was disappointed I didn't have this up earlier, here is the latest installment of WKJ. At least this question immediately narrows it down to just a few.

Category: Apostles

This apostle, who deemed himself unworthy to be crucified on the same type of cross as Christ, asked to be tied to a Crux decussata or an X shaped cross.

Bonus (easy once you know the apostle): which country bears this symbol on their provincial flag (coat of arms you could say).

St. Alex says, please place your answer in the form of a question in the combox, and say a few Hail Marys while you wait for the answer to be revealed.

Demerits for using Google and other sneaky searches. Educated guesses are welcome and encouraged. Good luck!!

Is Saint Andrew the brother of St Peter? And is he the patron saint of Scotland?

ArchAngel's Advocate said...

St. Andrews Cross is also in the field of the British flag (put there when Scotland became pat of Britain when James I was king)

Poor Ray, early bird missed the worm this time.

(Yes, St. Andrew is the patron of Scotland)

sprachmeister said...

As a Scot, I couldn't help myself when I saw the question. I should have probably left it to someone else though...
