|Jakobsweg = Santiago de Compostela|
It is said that he lived on the Eucharist, alone. His reputation for wisdom and holiness was famous, and people came from all over to seek his advice. His Ranft, or sanctuary, is a place of pilgrimage because it is on the path to Jakobsweg, or Santiago de Compostela. Since his advice saved Switzerland from civil strife, he is considered the patron saint of Switzerland.
His body is interred in the church of St. Niklausen in Sachseln.

After my hike, I trounced Sister Ann in ping pong. I have no pictures of that. It was too horrendous.
