Oooh, a Thorn!

A thorn you say? Hmm, oh yeah, I pulled it from my sandal!

I’m not sure I would go all the way to a museum to see a thorn that was “supposedly” on Jesus’s crown. Hmm, nope, no way, never. The crown  was said to have been seized from Constantinople around AD 1200  and was later sold to King Louis IX. Hmm, a thorn you say? Louis stripped the crown of its thorns by giving them to people who married into his family. I bet they were stoked! So anywho, the thorn on display was evidently given to Queen of Scots when she tied the knot with French royalty and she passed it on down the line until it ended up in the hands of a Jesuit priest who gave it to the Ribble Valley college… ta-da. Now, praise the Lord, its  on loan to the British Museum in London.
