|I keep this prayer card in my wallet|
"The sun is shining the daffodils are out and its a good day to be alive in God's own country."
Amen to that. St David performed many miracles and carried out many mortifications including standing neck deep in cold water for hours on end.
Well, the sun shining today feels like a miracle, because for the last month or two it's felt like I've been neck-deep in water!
But in all seriousness let us celebrate! Celebrate our national Saint, celebrate a wonderful man of God, celebrate a Priest who offered the Sacrifice of the Mass, celebrate a great Monastic who kept (the Celtic parts of) these lands Christian through the Dark Ages, keeping the Catholic and Roman Faith alive after the disintegration of the Roman Empire.
And in realising that St David was a truly great Briton and a Catholic, should remind us that the very roots of civilisation, law and all that was/is good is founded in Catholicism.
Remember: you don't have to be Welsh to celebrate and venerate St David.
Happy St David's Day to one and all.
P.S. Go to St David's in Pembrokeshire! It is a beautiful place. You can see the place where St David was born (St Non's Chapel) and remember: two pilgrimages to St David's is worth one to Rome.
