St. STURMI

Christian Saint

Also known as Sturm, Sturmius

Wishing to be an evangelist, he always seemed to get off on the wrong foot

“Westphalia — that’s the place,” said his mentor St. Boniface of Mainz. Who then gave him some very vague directions for a place improbably called Fulda.

When he finally found it with his band of monks in tow, the existing incumbent had him banished.

The stranded monks complained to King Pepin who was the nearest ruler. He decreed that Sturmi be re-instated with no more nonsense.

However, our Saint was driven away again, this time by Saxons who hated the Christians due to persecution by Charlemagne.

Trying once again for what he hoped might be a lucky third time, all seemed to be going well until he was prescribed some sort of medicine for some illness (probably chronic depression by this time). He was unlucky enough to take an accidental overdose which proved fatal.
