St. BRICE

Christian Saint

Also known as Brice of Tours

Patron Saint of Stomach Problems and Tummyache

A protégé of St. Martin of Tours.

He let his mentor down on every occasion. He disobeyed his holy orders, laughed at the other monks and was protected from punishment because he was also very rich.

He was elected Bishop to replace Martin when he died. It is possible money may have changed hands. His behavior did not improve and he was eventually forced to leave under a cloud.

He fled to Rome where after seven years he saw the light and returned as such a wonderfully changed pious and loveable person he was soon back to being Bishop, and was so sickeningly perfect that Sainthood was bestowed upon him.
