Patron Saint of Cooks, Chefs, and Comedians.

St. Lawrence was originally a Deacon in 258 A.D. in Italy.

When Roman emperor Valerian ordered his execution, Lawrence distributed the church’s wealth to the poor and sick.

A Latin poet, among others, wrote that Lawrence was being roasted to death on a gridiron.

He remarked at one point, “I am cooked on this side; turn me over and eat.”

St. Lawrence is the patron saint of cooks, chefs, and comedians.
