I have just found your blog and I like it. If you had a place for followers (I can't find it) I would definitely follow. Anyway, I see that you have posts on lots and lots of saints, many are not widely known. I have a Blog dedicated to the last Welsh Martyr, St David Lewis. I noticed that you have done a post on St David, Patron Saint of Wales, and I thought you might be interested in my Blog and St David Lewis. My aim is to spread devotion to St David Lewis, a great Welsh Jesuit Martyr, who is not widely known outside this area. Might I be so bold as to suggest that you have a peek at my Blog ( and that you might even like to do a post on him yourself. Anyway, have a very happy New Year, keep up the great blogging and God bless you.
