Today, the Church remembers David of Wales, Bishop, c. 544
The Collect of the Day:
Almighty God, who called your servant David to be a faithful and wise steward of your mysteries for the people of Wales: Mercifully grant that, following his purity of life and zeal for the Gospel of Christ, we may, with him, praise you both here on earth and also in your everlasting kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Please say a prayer today for David, and for all the wonderful churches around the world that claim him as their patron saint, especially our diocese’ own, St. David’s, built in 1909 in Rayville, and on the National Register of Historic Places.
