As a middle-aged man, he went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Rome, where he collected relics, returning to found a Benedictine abbey at Wörth, later named Grafrath after him.
He was a large man. When his relics were exhumed in 1468, it was determined that he was some 2 meters (6 ft 6 in) tall, although it was previously thought that he was even taller, since the size of his actual grave was 2 and a half meters.
In 955, the relics that Rasso had brought from Rome and the Holy Land to his monastery at Wörth had been transferred to Andechs Abbey to preserve them from the ravages of the Magyars.
