Saint Dwynwen


The 25th of January is the feast day of Saint Dwynwen. She is also known as Dwyn or Donwen and is the Welsh patron saint of lovers.

Saint Dwynwen lived in the 5th century and was a princess from Anglesey in Wales, the daughter of King Brychan Brycheiniog. She had fell in love with a young man, but did not want to marry him because of her piety and her intention to become a nun. She prayed that the desire for marriage would be removed from her, and that happiness will be granted to all lovers. She entered the religious life and built a convent in Llanddwyn Island. Her church and its “holy well” is a pilgrimage shrine, especially for lovers, from the Middle Ages till today.

Dear children, Through the great love of the Heavenly Father I am beside you as your mother and you are beside me as my children, as apostles of my love whom I ceaselessly gather around me. My children, you are those who, along with prayer, need to completely surrender to my Son so that you may no longer live but my Son may live in you - so that all those who do not know my Son may see Him in you and come to desire to know Him. Pray that in you they may see resolute humility and goodness, a readiness to serve others; that in you they may see that you live your vocation in the world with the heart, in communion with my Son; that in you they may see meekness, tenderness and love for my Son as well as for all brothers and sisters. Apostles of my love, you must pray much and cleanse your hearts so that you may be the first to walk on the way of my Son, that you may be the just who are united with the justice of my Son. My children, as apostles of my love, you must be united in the communion which emanates from my Son, so that my children who do not know my Son may recognize the communion of love and may come to desire to walk on the way of life, the way of unity with my Son. Thank you.
