Vitus, Martyr 15 June

St. Vitus is an early martyr, and his name appears on the old lists for this day, but no details of his life are known. St. Vitus's dance is a form of chorea, a disease which causes uncontrolled trembling. St. Vitus is the special patron of those who have trouble getting up on time in the morning. Surely at least one regular reader of this column has been looking for that information!
