Saint Nicholas Owen stands out from among a lot of the saints of his era as an ingenious priest-hole maker.  Travelling with Jesuit priests, even amidst the Gunpowder Plot, to build secret hiding places up and down Elizabethan and Jacobean England.  More than just a carpenter, Saint Nicholas had a deep faith which inspired him to become a Jesuit lay brother.
