29th March - Saints Gwynllyw and Gwladys; Saint Berthold of Carmel - Independent Catholic News

29th March - Saints Gwynllyw and Gwladys; Saint Berthold of Carmel - Independent Catholic News: These sixth century saints were the parents of St Cadoc, one of the early founders of monasticism in South Wales. They are also one of very few married couple to be canonised. Gwynllyw was a chieftain. His wife Gwladys also came from an aristocratic family. Much of their life was spent fighting neighbouring tribes, but their son Cadoc converted them to Christianity and they became devout followers of Christ.
