Details

March 1st is St David's Day, the national day of Wales and has been celebrated as such since the twelfth century. Descended from Welsh royalty, he was an ascetic and as a missionary travelled thoroughout Wales and Britain. He was consecrated bishop in Jerusalem, and founded many monasteries, including one at St David's, which he made his episcopal seat, later becoming Archbishop of Wales. St David died in Menevia on 1 March 589 AD, believed to be over 100 years old. This new book traces the background and heritage of this Apostle of Wales, still relevant for the new evangelisation today. 'In dedicating the mosaic in honour of St.David at Westminster Cathedral, Pope Benedict spoke of the great debt owed by Christian Europe to the great saints and missionaries of the sixth century of which David was one. David's preaching was simple yet profound. It was summed up in his final words: "Be joyful, keep the faith, and do the little things." Jesus reminds us that if we are faithful in little things we will be faithful in great things too. May this book on St.David inspire us to be faithful in all things.' - George Stack, Archbishop of Cardiff
