Entertaining Legends: While visiting Inish Ubdain (a small island), he found that mice had chewed at his shoes. He barked a sharp word at them and they all fled the island, which was convenient since Partick had already chased away the snakes, thus shaking up the whole predator-prey web.
On the island of En Irish, he ordered the birds to ground themselves and stop singing during the Mass. They complied, though they probably grumbled that Francis of Assisi had never insisted on that.
While living as a hermit, he got a local stag to hold his Bible in its antlers so that he wouldn't have to put it down while he prayed.
Suggestion: If you're ever the athletic director of a St. Kenneth's School or St. Cainnech's College, consider the stag as a mascot. Go Stags!
