Happy Feast-Day St Non!

St Non is St Davis's Mum. Like lots of feisty British Dark Age female Saints she seems to have had a difficult time of it but came out on top. Next to the ruins of her pre-Reformation shrine and her Holy Well (which sprang up as she gave birth to St David in a thunderstorm) is a very fine Catholic chapel of Our Lady and St Non. Well worth a visit. It is a short distance from the tiny city of St David's in Pembrokeshire. Sadly its beautiful Cathedral is still in the hands of the looters. Today is also my Mum's Birthday so please say a Hail Mary for her and ask for the intercession of St Non if you have a spare moment. Thanks!
