Prayer to St Brigid of Kildare.
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.
The St. Brigid’s Cross was traditionally believed to protect the house from fire and disease. As people hung up the cross they said this prayer: “May the blessing of God and the Trinity be on this cross, and on the home where it hangs and on everyone who looks at it.”
