St. Maurus was a sixth century monk, trained at
the Benedictine monastery at Subiaco, Italy and in France; there he
propagated the Benedictine rule. He was known for the virtue of
obedience as a follower of St. Benedict. Here he is depicted wearing
the black habit of the Benedictines, holding the staff of an Abbot.
Sometimes he is shown with a crutch and scales. He is invoked against
rheumatism and gout, although he is the Patron of those who are lame,
boiler makers, coal merchants, and gardeners.
