10 - Advent - 1200-1200

Christmas - a season of joy and celebration - often focusses our attention on the martyrs. We mustn't forget them during advent either. Today's Advent Calendar image marks the spot where many were executed on a wooden scaffold near Marble Arch. Welsh saint St John Roberts was martyred at Tyburn in December 1610. St John Roberts, pray for us.
