St. Pantaleon

St. Pantaleon was a Christian and a physician who never married. He gave the poor money and medical treatment at no charge. Other doctors told authorities that St. Pantaleon was a Christian, and he was brought to trial. While on trial, St. Pantaleon healed a sick man by mentioning Jesus’ name; the pagan priests weren’t able to heal anyone. Witnesses converted to Christianity. The saint wouldn’t give up his faith, so he was martyred circa 305. St. Pantaleon is patron saint of doctors and bachelors.
