Saint Brice: Patron Saint against Intestinal Diseases (Feast Date: November 13)
Extract from Saint Brice: “An orphan rescued by Saint Martin of Tours, and raised by Martin‘s clerics. Though ostensibly a spiritual student of Saint Martin, Brice became so wild, wicked, proud, ungrateful, and disorderly that some thought him possessed by a demon! He became a priest, but was a vain, ambitious one with contempt for Martin. Many advised Martin to kick him out, but Saint Martin said that if Jesus could deal with Judas, he could deal with Brice. On Martin‘s death in 397, Brice was designated to succeed him as bishop of Tours, France. However, the people of the diocese revolted, substituted a priest named Justinian, and Brice left town to avoid a stoning. Justinan held the see for over 30 years, during which Brice came to his senses, and began to lead a pious and admirable life. . . .” See PICTURE of Saint Brice.
