Saint Colluthus of Antinoe

Claim to fame: St Colluthus was pure from his youth. He refused to get married, and studied medicine and practiced it to cure the sick without charging them money. When the Saint’s parents departed, he built a hostel for the strangers.

Quote: “He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord,
And He will pay back what he has given.” – Proverbs 19:17

Fun fact: Multiple medical centres today are named after the Saint Colluthus due to his acts of kindness and service using his medical knowledge.
