Saint Medardus - Patron saint of the weather, invoked against toothaches
Feast day - June 8
They say that when Medardus was a young boy in France, he took shelter beneath the wings of an eagle during a rainstorm. At the age of 33, he begrudgingly accepted the position of Bishop of Vermand, though his devotion upon taking the job was unflagging, eventually taking over the diocese of neighboring Tournai as well. He passed his days evangelizing to the pagan Flemish people of northern France, and died at the age of 48. French superstition holds that the meteorological events of Medardus’s feast day will continue for the next 40 days, saying “Quand il pleut à la Saint-Médard, il pleut quarante jours plus tard” (If it rains on St Medardus’ Day, it rains for forty days more).
