Irish warrior woman, leader, this is her day. So I took the following from the wikipedia site, the music comes from Christina Perry, we still remember Brigid to this day, and those who carry her name, have done me some great favors, amen. I think Bob Dylan and Brigid would like the music too, so since she listens to the Spirit, may we be reminded of Her life, and recall at the same time, the Promises of God, they are eternal.
Saint Brigid of Kildare or Brigid of Ireland (Irish: Naomh Bríd; Latin: Brigida; c. 451 – 525) is one of Ireland’s patron saints, along with Patrick and Columba. Irish hagiography makes her an early Irish Christian nun, abbess, and foundress of several monasteries of nuns, including that of Kildare in Ireland, which was famous and was revered. Her feast day is 1 February, which was originally a pagan festival called Imbolc, marking the midway between winter and spring. Her feast day is shared by Dar Lugdach, who tradition says was her student, close companion, and the woman who succeeded her.
The saint shares her name with an important Celtic goddess and there are many legends and folk customs associated with her.
A man cries out, he is burying his young children, he is heart broken, and rightly sad. He asks, God how does this happen. Well, imagine it if you can, have we used wisdom, do we take care of creation, do we create stressed out societies, and do we feel powerless to do anything about it. The Prophet Isaiah said it all. When we turn to God, we can be healed in so many ways.
