Saint Louis IX, King of France

This year marks the 800th year since the birth of King Louis IX of France for whom the city of St. Louis is named.  It is also the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis.  When we were down there in February we attended a concert at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis and picked up this card.  On the reverse is a prayer to Saint Louis.  An interesting instance of people and places intersecting over time.
