Patron Saint of Doctors, Physicians, Surgeons, Pharmacists, and Druggists. Also Barbers and Hairdressers
Refusing to worship heathen Gods, they were bound in chains and thrown in the sea. An angel pulled them out and the presiding judge was struck down by demons.
Nevertheless persecution continued and the twins were thrown into a fire but the flames leapt outwards at the persecutors leaving our heroes unharmed.
Stoning didn't work either; the stones boomeranged, as did arrows. Only one thing left. Beheading. How is it that this always seems to work?
They are the Patrons of physicians and barbers.
