St. FIDELIS OF SIGMARINGEN

Christian Saint

Also known as Fidelis of Sigmarengen

A German who took the habit and was sent to preach among the Grisons

He was very unpopular amongst the Calvinists. Having a musket fired at him in church did fill him with foreboding and his last letter finished with: ‘Brother Fidelis, who will shortly be food for worms.’

How very true. Shortly after, he was attacked by a group of armed men who split his skull and hacked his body to pieces in a frenzy.
