Go ahead and grab your self a nice hot cup of coffee, and cozy up to these crazy saint facts!
1. Patron saint of what?
St. Augustine of Hippo is a beloved saint, who inspired many Catholics with his gorgeous writings, such as, Confessions. However, as we all know, before becoming a saint, Augustine lived a sinful life. His main focus was drinking and living promiscuously. After having a revelation from God, his life turned compltely around. He is now known as the patron saint of brewers. Ironic much?
2. Santa punched someone?
St. Nicholas was a man who gave freely, suffered for his faith, but he is infamously known for losing his temper and punching a heretic, Arius, in the face.
Yes, Santa punched him. Kids, Santa wasn't kidding when he said he knows who has been naughty and nice!
3. St.Patrick was British?
St. Patty's Day is infamously known as the day of binge drinking alcohol, and for all non-Irish to become Irish for the day. Ironically, the saint of this feast day wasn't Irish, he was actually from Britain who came to Ireland to spread Christianity. Mind blown.
4. There's a patron saint for that?
St. Drogo is the patron saint for unattractive people. During a pilgrimage, he was stricken with an illness that deformed his face. Now I know who I should've asked to pray for me when I was in middle school.
