Timothy – the patron saint of stomach disorders

In St Magnus Cathedral there is a wonderful stained glass window of Saint Timothy, the patron saint of intestinal and stomach disorders. Timothy was a follower of Saint Paul, who circumcised him, apparently to make him more acceptable to the Jewish people they were trying to convert to Christianity. The one thing I want to know is; would they have checked?

Personally I think he would have deserved the sainthood even if he never performed any miracles.
