Saint of the day: Saint Felix of Nola, an early Christian Saint, had a particular sympathy for innocents of false witness, and an immense gratitude to spiders. After escaping imprisonment and persecution he hid himself in a cave, where an obliging spider protected him from detection by spinning a web across the entrance. (He hadn't seen the Lord of the Rings, obviously.)
