St.David is the Patron Saint of Wales, we celebrate his life on the 1st of March – St David’s Day- every year. St David was born sometime in the late 5th century, to a nun called Non who had been raped by Sant, king of Ceredigion. David accompanied by Padarn and Teilo made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem where he was made archbishop by the patriarch there. This account of his life was written by Rhigyfarch, the son of Sulien, bishop of St David’s, towards the end of the 11th century. The legitimacy of the account is questionable as it contains much that is legendary.
Many miracles have been attributed to St David the most celebrated of which was performed when he was preaching at the Synod of Llanddewibrefi – a dove landed on his shoulder shortly before the ground rose beneath his feet, enabling the crowd to see and hear him.
