Historical events: Ferdinand Magellan discovered Guam (1521), The thirteen-day siege of the Alamo by Santa Anna and his army ended (1836)
Saint of the day: Saint Fridolin, an Irish monk, travelled all over western Europe, and on his way through Gaul stopped at a monastery at Poitiers that had recently been sacked by the Vandals. There, he was granted holy X-ray vision which enabled him to locate the relics of Saint Hilary beneath the rubble and became the reason he was chosen as the patron saint of optometrists.
