Saint Anthony, Patron Saint of Bacon

Saint Anthony, Patron Saint of Bacon

Sometimes- sometimes is the key word- it's kind of cool to be Catholic. Sure, there are a lot of "issues" that come with it. But at least we get resin toys to play with. "Known for healing skin diseases and inflammations, he is often depicted with a pig because pork fat was used as a treatment with similar results. Being identified with pigs led the swine herders to take him as their patron. For this reason, he has become the Patron Saint of Bacon. O wonderous St. Anthony, please bless me with an abundance of quality bacon and grant me the patience and timing to properly fry each glorious strip. Amen." YesButNotYes
