April 16

Saint of the day:
Saint Drogo, Druon

Patron Saint of Coffee,

Saint Drogo's Story

born the son of a Flemish nobleman in 1105 in Flanders, was the original multi-tasker—he could reportedly “bilocate” and was seen simultaneously working in the fields and going to Mass on Sundays. This undoubtedly took a lot of energy, which is probably one of the reasons why he is the patron saint of coffee and coffeehouses.
