Our Lady and Sheen

They found the Abbot! And his awesome teeth! (Who knew he was missing?)

“There has been no comparative grave found for the last 50 years in British archaeology.”

This is awesome!  I found on New Liturgical Movement an article about a former Abbot (may his soul rest in the Peace of the Risen Christ), that was just discovered in Britain:

He – or at least his remains – survived Henry VIII’s destruction of his abbey in 1537, eluded the grave-robbers that followed, and avoided discovery by Victorian archaeologists.

Even deep excavations and the underpinning of the crumbling building in the 1930s failed to unearth him.

But the abbot who headed Britain’s second richest and most powerful Cistercian monastery may soon be unmasked…

Please go to NLM or at the Daily Mail here to see the awesome picture.  Plus, this guy has got some AWESOME TEETH!
