Saint Pantaleon was a doctor of Egypt. He is one of the 14 Holy Helpers invoked by villages in Germany, Hungary and Poland to avoid the Black Death of the 1370’s. His assistance was favored by the crusaders of earlier generations. It is a day to say the Litany of the Fourteen Holy Helpers, see the beautiful Rococo Church dedicated to them online in rural Germany and avoid spiritual hedonism.
Today is the day of Saint Pantaleon, Catholic doctor of Egypt!
