St. Dwynwen Novena

St. Dwynwen Novena is prayed when you need her intercession for your lost love and reconciliation with your lover.

St. Dwynwen also known as Dwyn, Donwen, Donwenna, Dunwen, and Dwyn is the Welsh patron saint of lovers, broken-hearted people, and the patron saint of sick animals.

St. Dwynwen does not have a clear history but legend says she was the most beautiful daughter of King Brychan Brycheiniog and Rigrawst of the 5th century. 

As a young woman, Dwynwen fell in love with a young prince named Maelon Dafodrill, but her love is rejected by her father who had fixed her marriage with another alliance.

St. Dwynwen prays in vain that she forgets her love for Prince Maelon in order to marry according to her father’s wish and her prayer is answered after an angel offers her a potion granting her three wishes.

St. Dwynwen wishes that Prince Maelon be thawed and that God looks after all the true lovers; and that she remain unmarried and later dedicates her life to God.

St. Dwynwen established a convent in Llanddwyn and now is recognized as her pilgrimage. St. Dwynwen also built a Church in Anglesey known as Llanddwyn, meaning “Church of Dwynwen”.

St. Dwynwen served her life to God and died around 465AD.

St. Dwynwen’s life is presented in the writings of Edward Williams also known as Iolo Morganwg and is also mentioned in the early genealogies as one of the saintly daughters of the fifth-century king, Brychan Brycheiniog
