Stylite Limerick


Yes, he lived at the top of a pillar.
Was it “high life”? (Or just a joy-killer).
Though this Syrian ain’t
of much use as a saint,
He makes great theological filler.

    Well, he certainly wasn’t very glamorous, but he was known as preacher, counselor and mediator. I learn about a lot of unglamorous saints due to my job because I get to decide which ones to feature in our weekly bulletin. Maybe I should write limericks about them. 😂
