Spiritual sustenance, naturally.

Saint Dwynwen is the patron (matron?) saint of lovers and relationships; interesting legends and stories are associated with her. January 25th is the Welsh “Valentine’s Day.” I posted a “Happy St. Dwynwen’s Day” message on Facebook, and a friend asked if I would put it here, so here it is. Check out the Wikipedia link on her: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Dwynwen%27s_Day

Her stories remind us of the mutuality of love, and the pain when love is not reciprocated. Another version of her story can be found in the book Praying with Celtic Holy Women, by Mehan and Oliver.

Before going to sleep tonight, take a few moments to close your eyes, and with your imagination, encircle those close to you with warmth and love. If you are seeking a relationship, feel your heart open as you appreciate the goodness and love you already have in your life. And pay attention to your dreams.

Comments on: "Happy Saint Dwynwen’s Day!" (2)

  1. A lovely thought to go to sleep with at night . . . thinking of others in a warm circle. Nice, gentle post–so welcome in light of all the yucky headlines that writers want to clobber the cyber-space with today. As if there is nothing else going on in this world except horrible things. Simply is NOT true.
