Two Famous Catholics

Two very famous Catholics share a birthday today. (As well as an appreciation for good hats)
They are pictured here. A prize (a copy of one of my books) for the first person to recognize both of them and state the respective years of their birth on 3 January.

    …is the right answer.Geesh, I scarcely recognized these two guys, and everybody gets it first time. I’ll send you a book…I think I’ve got an old copy of a paperback by George Carey…something you’ll really enjoy.

    A significant day: “When I came to Greenville earlier this year [2006] to do a trial stint at St Joseph’s School I started work on January 3. I had brought with me the prayer card from June’s funeral, and when I casually took it out to re-fix it in its frame I saw that the anniversary of June’s death was January 3.”

    LOL, thanks Frank! stoopid of me to sabotage my own quiz. Correct answers are Mel Gibson and J.R.R.Tolkien born respectively in 1956 and 1892
