Does anyone really know if the Three Magi were priests? The only source is the book of Matthew and it doesn't mention them being priests. Wikipedia goes into some other apocryphal stuff about them, but I find it dubious.

The usual translation is "wise men" or "king."

The wikipedia part about Zoroastrianism is unsourced and correctly noted as unsourced on the wiki - it's not a great wiki. If someone has a source, they should definitely edit that wiki.

Different topic: that's so strange about the right wing in France and Joan of Arc. Some good reading there.

While not yet a saint, Margaret Pole, nee Margaret Plantagenet, daughter of the Duke of Clarence, executed by Henry VIII, was beatified by Pope Leo XIII. She's just a step away from sainthood.

Lady Margaret was beatified by Pope Leo XIII on the 29th of December 1886 as Blessed Margaret Pole.I wonder if there are any plans to make her Saint?

Nice stained glass memorial to the martyred Countess of Salisbury.
