Saint of the day: Saint Neol Chabanel was a missionary in the New World of North America where he had a terrible time. He couldn't get to grips with the languages of the native people, hated the food and found the living conditions unbearable, but vowed to God that he would stay there all his life if necessary. In a way, his prayers were answered, as he was killed not long after.
