On St. Brigid’s Feast Day,1 February, we invoke St Brigid, also known as Mary of the Irish or Muire na nGael.
Prayer to St. Saint Brigid
You were a woman of peace.
You brought harmony where there was conflict.
You brought light to the darkness.
You brought hope to the downcast.
May the mantle of your peace
cover those who are troubled and anxious,
and may peace be firmly rooted in our hearts and in our world.
Inspire us to act justly and to reverence all God has made.
Brigid you were a voice for the wounded and the weary.
Strengthen what is weak within us.
Calm us into a quietness that heals and listens.
May we grow each day into greater
wholeness in mind, body and spirit.
St. Brigid’s cross is a small cross usually woven from rushes and associated with Brigid of Kildare .
Traditionally made before the Feast day of St. Brigid.
It marks the beginning of spring
and people put them over doorways and windows to protect the home from any kind of harm.
