Saint of the Day: Saint Redegund, the daughter of a Theringian prince, was married to a womanising bigamist and comforted herself with pious works. She founded a monastery of nuns and a leper hospital, where she became famous for kissing the diseased patients. Faced by a crowd of pagans armed with swords and clubs, she reduced the angry mob to docility with the power of the cross that she carried.

Sovereignty over the oceans - like Britannia rather a long time ago, though we never called it this
