Ah yes! York Minster is a wonderful place, and indeed St. William is blessed by God, and in return, the archdiocese that he took care of.

                             William's mother Emma was the half-sister of King William I of England.   
                               Pope Eugene III suspended William of York.   
                                In 1147 William was deposed as Archbishop of York.
