ST. PASCHAL BAYLON
Patron of Cooks & Chefs


Paschal Baylon (1540-1592) was a Spanish Franciscan lay brother whose charity, humility and courtesy were extraordinary even by Franciscan standards. He often served as cook and doorkeeper, feeding friars, visitors and vast numbers of the poor. His ability as a baker and cook became legendary and, though poorly educated, his counsel was sought by rich and poor alike. Paschal was careful to observe the vow of poverty. He would never waste any food or anything given for the use of the friars, but with the poor he developed a reputation for great generosity. In this small image, cast in stone and painted by hand, he holds a spoon and three loaves.

Cast in stone and painted by hand. Perfect for small shrine or desktop. Includes gift box & story card. Stands or hangs on hook. 6" x 2 ¼" x 1 ¼" Made in USA.

Pascal resides on the counter separating kitchen from "dining" and seems quite at home there.
