Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, was famous as a holy man, preacher, and worker of miracles. He is the only Welsh saint to be recognized widely in the Western church. David is represented in art with a dove on his shoulder, evoking the legend that when he was asked to speak at the synod of Brefi, the ground under his feet rose, enabling him to be seen, and a snow-white dove – his emblem – perched on his shoulder, miraculously allowing his voice to be heard by everyone present. St. David’s Day is celebrated in the church on March 1 of each year.
