Wow St. David

Wow man this set of BUTLER'S LIVES OF THE SAINTS I have is even more waterlogged than I remembered! And it smells weirder, I bet, than Kelly Hogan's copy of THE HUCKSTERS. There is deadly stuff growing on the volume containing St. David. Yet that shan't stop me from keeping my promise to look up stuff about St. David for you on St. David's Day: "he obliged all his monks to assiduous manual labor in the spirit of penance: he allowed them no use of cattle to ease them at their work in tilling the ground." Sounds like a fun guy! "St. Kentigern saw his soul borne up by angels into heaven." So that's cool.
