May 5 -- Feast of St. Drausinus

Here's a saint you can use. This bishop of Soissons became the patron of champions, invoked against enemy attacks. It was said that if one spent a night in his tomb, one became invincible.
Entire platoons would camp out there overnight before battles.

Of course, Thomas a Becket also visited the tomb before he returned to England, where he was murdered at the altar of Canterbury Cathedral, so you can't put all your faith in a saint's legend.

  1. You put your faith in God...not legends. St Thomas was betrayed, the betrayal leading to his death...not his lack of faith in God.
