Saint of the day: Saint Fillian, an eighth century hermit, was famed for his glowing left hand and is invoked against madness. Up until the nineteenth century, those considered mad were dipped in a pool and left tied up overnight in the ruins of his chapel. If they were found loose in the morning, they were considered cured. Which doesn't say much for the 'sane' ones.
