A month of Saints. Part-One.

Saint David and Saint Piran.

1st March Cymru-Wales, 5th March Curnow-Cornwall.

Very little is known about these two men, but what an impact as Christian believers preaching the ‘Good News message they have had over the last 1500 years in the western regions of mainland Britain.

Many people will jump up and protest that these were good Catholics, but how wrong you are. These men like Saint Patrick, the establisher of Celtic Christianity and mission was a born again Christian and His followers were the same.

They held no alligance to Rome but their Lord Jesus alone.

Exodus 15:2,  Psalm 18:46,  27:1,  Romans 8:26-27,  Philippians 2:12,  3:3.

Month of Saints.

March is upon us and its the month for Celtic saints. 1st March St. David, Wales, 5th, Saint Piran of Cornwall and the 17th Saint Patrick of Ireland. It was Patrick who really got the ball rolling for Christianity in the western fringes of the British Isles and NW-France.

All of these men risked life and limb to reach out to the pagan world around them. They brought hope and the promises of Jesus in relation to New Life and eternity. People in these societies had little hope and were much relient on pleasing deities, some times with human sacrafice. With great loss to the younger generation. But the impact of these saints has lated to this day and millions of people have been influenced for good over those generations.
