After losing his parents at a young age, Saint Rocco gave away everything he owned and abandoned his privileged life to go on a Pilgrimage to Rome. While on the journey, Rocco became gravely ill and believed he was going to die. While awaiting death, Saint Rocco befriended a dog who brought him snacks from his master’s table to help Rocco recover. In Europe, homeowners often put “VSR”—”Viva Saint Rocco”—on the front of their doors to ward off disease. Pray to Saint Rocco, patron of dog lovers, to bring good health to you and your four-footed friends!
