Louis IX (25 April 1214 – 25 August 1270), commonly known as Saint Louis or Louis the Saint, is the only king of France to be canonized in the Catholic Church. He took the Crown of Thorns to Paris about 1238 and had the Sainte-Chapelle built (1242–48) to house it. Ludovicus is a Latinized form of the Germanic masculine given name Hludwig ("Lewis").


Joseph is a figure in the canonical gospels who was married to Mary, mother of Jesus, and was the legal father of Jesus. Joseph is venerated as a Saint in the Catholic Church, Orthodox Church, Oriental Orthodox Church, Anglicanism, and Lutheranism. In Catholic traditions, Joseph is regarded as the patron saint of workers and is associated with various feast days. The month of March is dedicated to Saint Joseph. Pope Pius IX declared him to be both the patron and the protector of the Catholic Church, in addition to his patronages of the sick and of a happy death, due to the belief that he died in the presence of Jesus and Mary. Joseph has become patron of various dioceses and places.
