Product Description

Lawrence, a deacon in third-century Rome, was asked to gather the Church's treasures for confiscation by Roman authorities. Quick-witted Lawrence brought forward the poor; the true treasures of the Church. For this insolence, Lawrence was tied to a grill and burned. There's an old tale that while being burned, Lawrence said, "Turn me over, I'm done on this side." True story or not, he is the patron of comedians as well as cooks.
