Happy St. Crispian's Day (a day late)

St. Crispian and his twin St. Crispin were preachers from Soissons who supported themselves by cobbling and won many converts before being martyred by Diocletian.  Their feast is also the anniversary of the battle of Agincourt (1415 AD), a decisive victory won by an outnumbered English army in the Hundred Years War.   To celebrate, listen to Olivier's rousing recitation of King Henry's speech before the battle.

St. Crispin and St. Crispian, pray for us.
