Saint of the day: St Gregory the Wonderworker, a third century saint, was a geographer's nightmare, performing miracles that included changing the course of a river and moving a mountain. He also put his powers over nature to good use in his role as a civil judge. When two brothers were in dispute over rights to a lake, he thoughtfully resolved the matter by drying up the lake.
