St David

coch05Whoops! I forgot to mention St. David on his feast day yesterday. But then it was a Sunday and generally the less important saints have their feast day moved as Sundays are always more important than saints, because Sunday reminds us of Jesus’ resurrection. Only the apostles have their feast day on Sunday’s!

St. David is of course the patron saint of Wales  and he was a monk and a bishop who lived in the 6th Century. He is remembered for his very holy life of prayer, his kindness and care of the poor and the sick. He is believed to have founded the monastery (the place where monks live and work) in the town known today as St. Davids.
