Feast Day 1st February.
Everything that Brigid would ask of the Lord was granted her at once.
For this was her desire: to satisfy the poor, to expel every hardship, to spare every miserable man.
Now there never hath been anyone more bashful or more modest or more gentle or more
humble or more discerning or more harmonious than Brigid.
In the sight of other people she never washed her hands or her feet or her head.
She never looked at the looked at the face of a man. She never spoke without blushing.
She was abstemious, innocent, prayerful, patient: she was glad in God’s commandments:
she was firm, humble, forgiving, loving: she was a consecrated casket foe keeping
Christ’s body and His blood; she was a temple of God.
Her heart and her mind were a throne of rest for the Holy Ghost.
She was single-hearted (towards God): she was compassionate towards the wretched; she was splendid in miracles and marvels: wherefore her name among created things is Dove among birds, Vine among trees, Sun among stars…She is the prophetess of Christ:
She is the Queen of the South: She is the Mary of Gael.
St. Brigid Please Pray For Us.
