Saint of the day: Saint Henry Suso, a German noble, became a monk at the age of thirteen and was infamous for his austerity. Every night for fifteen years he wore a shirt equipped with one hundred and fifty nails pointing inwards. One day an angel had a quiet word with Henry to say that God would like him to stop, so Henry threw the shirt into the Rhine.
