Saint of the day: Saint Thecla of Iconium incurred the wrath of her parents and local magistrates when she converted to Christianity. They tried to burn her, but a storm put out the fire. They threw her to beasts, but she baptised herself in a ditch and the animals refused to attack. She retired to a cave, but she didn't get much peace there either, having to disappear into a secret passageway to Rome when men were sent to kill her.
