The Sainties: Category 6 Voting

The Sainty Awards is a little theme week here at Saint Kitsch in honour of our favourite Saints that make us swell with happiness God hasn't asked us to be them.

Most Bizarre Mortification

And The Nominees Are...

  • St. Rose of Lima

Rubbing lye (i.e. flesh rotter.) on her face to make herself less attractive

  • St. Simeon Stylites

Living, standing, on top of a pillar for 39 years to "get away from it all"

  • St. Ignatious of Loyla

Weighted chain around the private parts (I suppose for obvious reasons.)

  • St. Macarious the Egyptian

Six months in the desert naked, stung perpetually by flies as penance for killing a flea.
