Saint of the day: Saint Romanus left the relatively comfortable home of a monastery to live on the cold slopes of the Alps where his only shelter was a fir tree. Luckily the tree was quite large, as Romanus was soon joined up there by his brother and sister and a number of would-be monks and nuns who dressed themselves in animal skins.
