"Gwnewch y pethau bychain mewn bywyd"
"Do ye the little things in life"I'm with you there, Dewi Sant! While he has a grand cathedral, the essence of the man permeates the soul of Cymru.
|St. David's Cathedral, Pembrokeshire|
|Ruins of the Bishop's Palace, St. Davids|
|The Cathedral through a window of the Bishop's Palace|
|St. David's Cathedral from a tower of the Bishop's Palace|
|Claimed to be relics of St. David. Most likely a medieval forgery. But he was buried here before the cathedral was built.|
It didn't stop me from kneeling and making the sign of the cross as my ancestors would have done.
|A Hobbit door at the Cathedral|
|And the Cathedra or chair of the Archbishop with the armorial of the Bishops of St. Davids|
St. David's cross, yellow on black, with black cinquefoils
|And I discovered the tomb of Edmund Tudor, father of Henry VII, brother of that rascal Jasper Tudor.|
|St. Non's Holy Well.|
I climbed down and dipped my fingers to make the sign of the cross on my forehead.
Can't say it healed anything, but it was worth a try.
|Site of original St. Non's Chapel and traditional birthplace of St. David on the Pembrokeshire coast.|
|A view of the Pembrokeshire coastline|
|A simple man like St. David. A Latter-day Saint even if not as holy.|
(I was wearing sandals not to imitate Dewi Sant, but because my feet hurt so badly in my shoes. These were better.)
