St. BENEDICT

Christian Saint

Also known as BENEDICT-THE-GREAT, BENEDICT-OF-NURSIA

Patron Saint of Europe, Schoolboys and people who've been poisoned

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.
