Saint of the day: St Homobonus was a happily-average cloth worker, who lived in the Twelfth Century. One day during mass, he stretched out his arms in the shape of the cross and fell flat on his face. It wasn't until after mass that people realised that he had dropped dead. He was fast-tracked to canonisation because the Pope wanted to boost the quota of everyday saints, at a time when few were neither martyrs, bishops or monks. He was described as one who did "ordinary things extraordinarily well".
