St. Guy of Anderlecht †1012

St. Guy of Anderlecht

  St. Guy of Anderlecht is counted as an intercessor for persons with epilepsy and also for hydrophobia (the fear of water) and rabies. He was a simple, poor farmer who became a sacristan (caretaker of the room where ecclesiastical vestments and sacred vessels are kept). He made an investment, but the cargo went down with the ship in the harbor; he blamed himself for being greedy, repented, and went on a pilgrimage to Rome, and later to Jerusalem, where he eventually served as a guide to other pilgrims. While returning home, he died. Sources:
