Dydd Gywl Dewi Hapus..

March 1st, seems an appropriate time to talk about Saint David, the patron saint of Wales…

St Dewi being the Welsh spelling & pronunciation of St David, it seems only right, that on the national day of Wales, we spell it in Welsh, a native tongue to so many…

davivSt David is said to be the son of St Non, who has a number of churches dedicated to her, in her own right… David was a local lad born and raised in Wales, in about 500AD… and when he was old enough David then took his vows as a monk and promptly went on his travels around England and the known world, with his fame spreading as he traveled…

St Davids is a city in Pembrokeshire, with a cathedral lying on the River Alun… It is the final resting place of Saint David, & named after him, St Davids is the U. K. smallest city in terms of population and urban area, yet the whole area is steeped in saints, with wells, churches, and monasteries all within foot travel dedicated to various saints…it is the finishing point of a pilgrimage route from Llandaff to St David’s…although i do not know how many wells survive today as the victorians drained the area around the monastery 200px-St_Non_stained_glass_window_in_St_Nons_Chapelto prevent it from sinking, thus drying out the wells…

Saint Non there is much wrote about her from different faiths and is revered as the mother of St David…

“Y Draig Goch”

bgtOr the Red Dragon, as a symbol of Wales and on her flag is said to be left over from the time of the Romans, and when they left the Dragon remained as a symbol and a key emblem of Wales…
