fruit of the vine

st. morand was born to a noble family in germany, but gave up his wealth and prestige to become a benedictine monk. he once survived a whole lenten season (40 days not including sundays, for those unacquainted) eating nothing but a bunch of grapes. this miracle earned him the resplendent patronage of wine growers.
in my humble opinion, he does good work.
