Today’s saint is Saint David of Menevia:
Saint David (Welsh: Dewi Sant; c. 500 – c. 589) was a Welsh bishop of Menevia during the 6th century; he was later regarded as a saint and as the patron saint of Wales. David was a native of Wales, and a relatively large amount of information is known about his life. However, his birth date is still uncertain, as suggestions range from 462 to 512. The Welsh annals place his death 569 years after the birth of Christ, but Phillimore’s dating revised this to 601.
A few interesting facts from the wiki on him:
- He was a major opponent of Pelagianism (a school of thought which rejected original sin)
- His monastic rule was very demanding- for example one could eat just bread with salt and herbs
- He is almost always depicted with a dove on his shoulder
