Saint of the day: Saint Teresa of Avila, a Sixteenth Century nun, had always tried to lead a holy life - at the tender age of five, she ran away with her brother in the vain hope that they'd get the opportunity to be beheaded for their faith. She came from a family where her father was obsessed with strictness and her mother was obsessed with romantic novels, so maybe it's not so surprising.
