Roman Catholic Saint. He was born into a noble family and was being advanced at a young age into the upper ranks of the church. After an accident with his horse in which he was publically shamed he retired for reflection. After much prayer and solitude he became a model of christain virtues instead of just another aristocratic priest. Respected by all and was the chaplain and confessor to King Ferdinand the Saint of Castile. Many miracles were said to have been done by Elmo and his Feast Day is April 14. He is a Patron of stomach disorders.
