St. BENIGNUS OF DIJON

Christian Saint

A martyr of bone fide bones

Some bones found in a tomb at Dijon may belong to him. He has never reclaimed them, but when you reach Sainthood there is a tendency to relinquish such relics for souvenirs to be stored in reliqueries.

For a long time the bones were reverenced by devout locals, but a certain Bishop, doubting their authenticity, started demolition work.

God soon put a stop to that with a rather convincing vision and so the bishop backed down.
