Saint Conrad of Piacenza was born and married into nobility. He was the cause of a terrible forest fire that destroyed farms and fields, while on a hunt to flush out game. An innocent man was accused and condemned to death for this accident. St. Conrad overcame his cowardice and confessed and paid for the damages. Afterward, he and his wife agreed to enter religious life, he as a hermit and she as a Poor Clare. Once when he visited a bishop to make a general confession, he was surrounded by fluttering birds who escorted him home. He lived as a hermit for 36 years and his body was found incorrupt in 1485.
