Lessons from the Saints : Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus!

Saint David (Dewi Sant in Cymric), he was a teacher and a preacher who Christianized Wales (which then served as the cradle for evangelism in Celtic Europe) and established a monastic rule underlined by an extreme asceticism which has been attributed to 'celtic' monastics in general, a rule he followed himself.  There is a quote purportedly from his last sermon which I believe is as prescient today as it was some1500 years ago.

'Be joyful, keep your faith and your creed. Do the little things that you have seen me do and heard about.'

I can't think of anything to add which wouldn't be gilding the daffodil.

Doilch fo i Dduw!
