Saint of the day: Saint Mary lived a solitary life in the Palestinian desert. She lived on next to no food and grew her hair so long that she was able to protect her modesty when her clothes rotted away. And Mary was undoubtedly modest. When she was finally discovered, she said she had fled the world to avoid her great beauty being a temptation to men. When the priest returned to see her the following year, he found she had died and so buried her body with the help of a friendly lion.
