(died circa 670)
Patron of gardeners, florist & cab drivers
St. Fiacre developed a special skill for gardening while being raised in a monastery in Ireland. Soon after he was ordained, Fiacre moved to France where Bishop Faro granted him a large lot of land to garden. He grew a beautiful variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs. With the herbs and his healing hands, Fiacre was able to cure all manner of disease. The Bishop declared Fiacre’s garden to be a miracle and it became a pilgrimage site for those seeking healing.
