Saint Roch is a 14th century saint, born in Montpellier, France. He is revered as the protector of the sick, especially victims of the plague. Legend has it that he contracted the disease while tending the sick, but was miraculously cured by a dog that brought him food. Because of this history, he is often depicted with a dog at his side. Saint Roch is commemorated on August 16, the day of his death, and many churches and chapels are dedicated to him throughout the world. His exemplary life and acts of charity make him a symbol of compassion and dedication to suffering people.
