He’s the brother of St. Scholastica and Founder of the Benedictines.
He started out as a hermit who worked out a splendid method of quelling lust: rolling around naked in thorns and brambles.
With these distractions out of the way, he was able to concentrate on producing such a liqueur as Benedictine which must have made things a lot more bearable.
His status as a Patron Saint of Poison Victims should hopefully keep you safe if you drink too much of the stuff.
