  • St. Roch
    St. Roch was born in 1295 with a red cross birthmark on his chest. After being orphaned at age 20, he made a pilgrimage to Rome where he cared for plague victims. He fell to the plague himself, but recovered with the aid of a dog. Upon his return to Montpellier, Roch was accused of being a spy and imprisoned. He never revealed that he was the son of the former governor. Whether his identity was discovered before or after his death depends on the story.
