Saint Lawrence was the archdeacon and treasurer of the Church during a time when practicing the Faith was banned. When his superiors were captured, he took the wealth of the Church and dispersed it among the poor. At his execution, he was asked by the authorities to hand over the riches of the Church, so he brought a large number of Rome's poor with him. He is a patron saint of comedians, cooks, and chefs. Feast day is August 10.
