Rita's St. Brigid 7 Day Ritual Altar Candle  Perfect for Imbolc, Candlemas - Saint of the Flame
Saint Brigid was said to be the daughter of a druid who had a vision that she was to be named after a great goddess. She was born at sunrise while her mother was walking over a threshold, and so "was neither within nor without." This is the state known as liminality, from the Latin, limen: a threshold – the state of being “in between” places and times. In Celtic tradition this is a sacred time when the doors between the worlds are open and magical events can occur.

It was said: "from Brighid's feastday onwards the day gets longer and the night shorter.” Although this refers to the time of the winter Solstice, the felt truth was that the goddess brought back the growing light. On the eve of Là Fhéill Bhrìghde (St.Brigid’s Day), the Old Woman of Winter, the Cailleach, journeys to the magical isle in whose woods lies the miraculous Well of Youth. At the first glimmer of dawn, she drinks the water that bubbles in a crevice of a rock, and is transformed into Bride, the fair maid whose white wand turns the bare earth green again. Another version of the story of Spring tells how Bride is a young girl kept prisoner by the Cailleach all winter long in the snowy recesses of Ben Nevis. She is rescued by the Cailleach’s son who elopes with her despite his mother’s attempts to keep them apart with fierce storms.

Saint Quote: I would like the angels of Heaven to be among us. I would like an abundance of peace. I would like full vessels of charity. I would like rich treasures of mercy. I would like cheerfulness to preside over all. I would like Jesus to be present. I would like the three Marys of illustrious renown to be with us. I would like the friends of Heaven to be gathered around us from all parts. I would like myself to be a rent payer to the Lord; that I should suffer
distress, that he would bestow a good blessing upon me. I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings. I would like to be watching Heaven's family drinking it through all eternity. -Saint Brigid of Ireland

Prayer to St. Brigid
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.
