Sixth century Wales. An Irish Saint Tathan, son of Anna (daughter of Meurig) who has married Tathetus (Annan Ddu) in Ireland renounces the throne to travel on a Shite Martyrdom. He sets sail on a boat without oars and his boat arrives in the Severn and he disembarks at Portskewett to found one of the most glittering educational monasteries in Wales, There are miracles connected with him. The tale of the stag, mimicing that of Christ, guiving himself up for food. He is given the whole city of Caerwent. He trains Cadoc, Gwynlliw's son, who becomes one of the most famous Welsh saints.
I tell of my trip to Cornwall, to Tintagel and Boscastle and also to the Chapel of Fontrevault in the Normal Wall at Caerwent, from which there is a short soundseeing.A very British 'email' segment and a final partof a letter of St Ignatius of Antioch, one of the people trained in Rome in the early church of Peter and Paul. Please pray for Mary.
