"Yn Lle Allol, Trestyl Trist", St Richard Gwyn


St. Richard Gwyn, a Welsh teacher and father of six children who was executed in 1584 for recusancy [refusal to attend Protestant services], looked upon the desecrated sanctuaries of Wales and remarked with sadness: "Yn lle allol; trestyl trist" (In place of an altar, there is a miserable table.) Tomorrow the 17th October is his Feast Day, so let us say Introibo ad altare Dei, once again.

Get the book Man of Maelor published circa 1970. Really tells the story of this wonderful Saint.
