Pascal Gross, 19 February 2002 

Beatus of Lungern (d. ca. 112), a hermit who lived and died in a cave on Mount Beatenberg, Switzerland. His untrustworthy legendary story has him the apostle of Switzerland, baptized in England by St. Barnabas and ordained in Rome by St. Peter, who sent him to evangelize the Swiss. His cave became a place of pilgrimage and his legend has him fighting and slaying a dragon there. Saint's day: 9 May.
