A reader asks:

I am looking for information on St. Bonaventure. I know St. Bonaventure is the patron saint of bowel disorders, my question is why is this patronage ascribed to him? I would imagine it has something to do with his death. I seem to remember reading that Bonaventure died of a ruptured bladder and it seems that it would have spilled over into his bowels. Could you give me more information on his patronage and his death?

Gross huh? Thanks a million.
