In his beautiful prayer from the gallows, the last Welsh martyr, St David Lewis prayed;

“Incarnate Son of God, true God, Thou hast purchased a Church here upon earth with Thy Sacred Blood and planted it with Thy Sacred labours, a Church, one, holy, Catholick and Apostolick, a Church to continue to the consummation of the world. Whatever that Church of Thine hath by Revelation from Thee, whatever that Church of Thine hath taught me, and commanded me to believe, I believe it to an iota”.

What we hear in this video, in a language in which St David Lewis was fluent, is what the saint believed “to an iota”!
