Patron of Wales
St. David, also known as Dewi, was born in Wales. As a monk, he founded many monasteries throughout Wales. According to legend, David was preaching to a great crowd in Jerusalem when a dove perched in his shoulder to show that David was blessed by the spirit. The earth then rose underneath David to lift him up high so that all present could hear him speak. His feast day, March 1st is celebrated by wearing a Welsh leek leaf or flower.
