"Oh for Pete's sake!"

My mom has said this for years.  She was raised in the Church of Christ and her mother allowed nothing that could be regarded as cursing.  If I remember right, she couldn't even say "darn."  When she is frustrated, she can be heard exlaiming, "Oh for Pete's sake!"

I've always wondered who Pete is.
