A couple of links

The Hagiography Circle is a marvelous site. For supplicants, devotees, sainthood geeks, and those for whom reading about sanctity figures prominently in their practice of it. (Via Moniales OP.)

At last! The Infant Samuel at Prayer, made available to 21st Century mantles everywhere!
I could see that she was looking for something to break as a relief to her surging emotions ... and courteously drew her attention to a terra-cotta figure of the Infant Samuel at Prayer. She thanked me briefly and hurled it against the opposite wall.
P.G. Wodehouse, The Code of the Woosters
The one regret is that the Infant Samuel is not represented as unambiguously possessing golden curls.
