ST. DROGO – Patron of Coffee Houses/Deaf People
When Drogo found out his mother died in childbirth, he spent years punishing himself for it, at one point becoming a pilgrim. After travelling, he became a shepherd but soon came down with a disease that deformed his face. A cell was constructed for him in the Church where he lived alone, out of sight, surviving only on barley, water and the Holy Eucharist until his death.
