  "St. Yoo of Kermartin, was a lawyer in early life, and was called "the advocate of the poor." As a lawyer he always endeavored to prevent rather than promote quarrels. As a judge he was just and incorruptible. For the poor he felt special interest, and from them would take no fees. One morning a poor, half-naked beggar was found upon his doorstep, who had passed the night there shivering with the cold. The next night he made the beggar sleep in his own bed, and he himself lay upon the doorstep, that he might learn from experience what the sufferings of the poor are, and have always a true sympathy for them."
