5 Songs for Jesus' Grandma St. Anne's Day

If you grow up without any religion, you either avoid all trappings of it like the plague or you absolutely love to explore it. Rocks Off is firmly in the latter camp, and nothing gets us more excited than the culture of Saints in Catholicism. We've written many a letter to Wizards of the Coast suggesting some kind of combat card game utilizing the powers of these holy men and women, but all we ever get is another restraining order for the file.

If there is a single day that you cannot dedicate a feast to some kind of saint, then we haven't been able to find it. Granted, not all the saints are really exciting kind of people. For every one who can restore the dead from dismemberment - Santa Claus, in case you wondered - there's another who just led a quiet, godly life and died in bed.
