The feast day of St. David of Wales is celebrated on March 1.
St. David of Wales was the son of King Sant of South Wales and St. Non. He was born in 542 at Maneua, Wales. He was ordained a priest and became a missionary. He lived an austere lifestyle, doing farm work in silence without the help of animals and eating only bread, vegetables and water.
St. David of Wales became known for his preaching. While attending a Synod his preaching impressed those who heard him so much that he was elected primate of the Cambrian Church. He ruled his diocese for many years. Monasteries flourished under his leadership.
One of the well known legends about St. David is that while preaching one day, a dove descended and landed on his shoulder, symbolizing the blessings of the Holy Spirit. The earth rose beneath him enabling the people to hear him speak.
St. David died of natural causes in 589 at Mynyw , Wales. He was canonized by Pope Callistus II.
He is Holy Joseph, because no other saint but he lived in such and so long intimacy and familiarity with the source of all holiness, Jesus God incarnate, and Mary, the holiest of creatures.
Quote of Bl. John Henry Newman; Feast day October 9
March is the Month of St. Joseph
