Saint Brigid is also the patroness of babies, blacksmiths, cattle, chicken farmers, children whose parents are not married, dairy workers, fugitives, midwives, poets, sailors, and scholars.
Brigid, you were a woman of peace, You brought harmony where there was conflict. You brought light into 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 reverence all God has made. Brigid, you were a voice for the wounded and the weary. Strengthen what is weak within us. Clam us into a quietness that heals and listens. May we grow each day into greater wholeness - In mind, body and spirit. Amen.
