David, Bishop. Patron Saint of Wales.
Feast Day 1st March.
David (Dewi) is believed to have been born in
South Wales towards the end of the 6th Century. Tradition attributes the
foundation of ten monasteries to him, the most important being Menevia
These communities were noted for the austerity and prayer
practised by the monks, in accord with that of the Egyptian hermits. By
the 12th Century pilgrims journeyed to his shrine at Menevia.
He was noted for his persuasive eloquence and it is said that at the
church synod in Cardigan which elected him head of the Welsh Church a
white dove descended on his shoulder as he preached.
His last recorded words were said to be:
“Be joyful brothers, and sisters. Keep your faith and do the little things that you have seen and heard with me.”
