Saint Vitus is the patron of epileptics, dancers, and actors. The legend of St. Vitus holds that he converted at the age of twelve and cured Emperor Diocletian's son of an evil spirit. This resulted in him being tortured as the nobility assumed he used sorcery in the healing, however, Saint Vitus emerged unharmed and was freed from prison by a terrible storm destroying numerous pagan temples. He was then led to Lucania by an angel. St. Vitus is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers and his feast day is June 15th.
