It's such a shame that the Vatican limited the number of official saints. Because this one, Saint Fiacre, the patron saint of hemorrhoids, is my hands-down favorite. Is it me, or does he look a tad constipated?

Did not know there was a patron saint of hemorrhoids.

Yes; and his posture suggests that he's seated rather gingerely upon that hard wooden bench? Owwie :( Whatever; I'll be sure to pray for the repose of his soul and a shrinking of his time in Purgatory.
