Richard Gwyn: Defender of the Mass, Saint
Saint Richard Gwyn: Defender of the Mass:
Saint Richard Gwyn was renowned for writing daring poetry in the style of the Welsh bards to defend the truths and teachings of the Catholic Faith during a time of great persecution in England and Wales. He had a sharp wit, piety, devotion and love of family and Faith that saw him come to the notice of the anti-Catholic government. Fleeing with his family, Saint Richard Gwyn evaded conformist spies and Catholic hunters until a fateful meeting with a man only eager to hand him over to the authorities for coin. Locked up, placed in the gallows, preached to be Anglican clergymen, nothing deterred this fervent Catholic man from remaining firm in the outlawed Faith. He was sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered at Wrexham and heroically gave his life, leaving us a powerful witness today.
