SAINT OF THE DAY
St. David of Wales
St. David of Wales (6th c.), also called Dewi Sant among native Welsh, was a missionary priest, Celtic monk, archbishop, and the founder of many monasteries in Wales and western England. Known for his great leadership abilities, he was influential in many Church affairs. In the dozen monasteries he founded he established strict asceticism modeled after the early desert hermits. St. David is depicted standing on a mound with a dove on his shoulder. The legend is that once while he was preaching a dove rested on his shoulder, and the earth rose to lift him up above the crowd of people, so that everyone could hear him speak. St. David is one of the great saints of the 6th century whose work helped to establish the Christian culture in Europe. He is the patron saint of Wales, and his feast day, known as "St. David's Day," is a popular cultural celebration there. St. David's feast day is March 1.
