Patron Saints & Keep Your Pants On

Saint Pantaleon, Saint Catherine’s Monastery, Mount Sinai, 13th century

I really dropped the ball on July 27th, but it is the Catholic Feast Day of Saint Pantaleon, Martyr of Nicomedia (modern day Turkey). He is the Patron Saint of physicians, apothecaries, midwives, livestock, the lottery and lottery winners, called on against headaches, consumption, locusts, witchcraft, accidents, and loneliness, and helper for crying children. Possibly, his name is involved in the origin of the word pants.
