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.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

May 02, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, all that my Son, who is the light of love, has done and does, He has done out of love. Also you, my children, when you live in love and love your neighbors, you are doing the will of my Son. Apostles of my love, make yourselves little; open your pure hearts to my Son so that He can work through you. With the help of faith, be filled with love. But, my children, do not forget that the Eucharist is the heart of faith. This is my Son who feeds you with His Body and strengthens you with His Blood. This is a miracle of love: my Son who always comes anew, alive, to bring life back to souls. My children, by living in love you are doing the will of my Son and He lives in you. My children, my motherly desire is for you to always love Him more, because He is calling you with His love. He is giving you love so that you may spread it to all those around you. As a mother, through His love, I am with you to speak the words of love and hope to you - to speak to you the eternal words that are victorious over time and death - so as to call you to be my apostles of love. Thank you.
