St Dunstan, Westminister LLewAlso on this date, the Benedictines recall the holy life of Saint Dunstan. Today’s Benedictine saint is very much revered by the Catholics of England –read up on him here.

Once pull’d the devil by the nose
With red-hot tongs, which made him roar,
That he was heard three miles or more.”
