Who is the Patron Saint of Bloggers?
St. Vitus -- A fourth century Sicilian martyr about whom little is known for sure. Northern European Catholics used to dance before his statue to gain favors. Later the neurological disorder Sydenham's chorea was called "St. Vitus' Dance." He is thus the patron saint of dancers, and, by extension, entertainers of all kinds (including bicycle-riding bears). Those who oversleep also seek his intercession.
St. Genesius -- 4th century actor and martyr. He converted onstage during a play mocking Christians and was tortured to death by Diocletian. Patron saint of comedians, clowns and entertainers, also thieves and (now with St. Thomas More) lawyers! During his last performance, he ad libbed: “You fools, I am resolved to die a Christian that God may receive me as one who seeks His salvation by turning away from idolatry and superstition.” Everybody laughed until he said, "No, really." Now he's making other saints laugh in Heaven.
