Brigid (451 - 523 )

St. Brigid's Blessing

Through her holy intercession
with our Father in Heaven,
may St. Brigid bless
you and and make you
generous in your giving,
pleasant in your greeting,
honest in your speaking,
loyal in your loving,
clear in your thinking,
strong in your working,
and joyful in your living
And when it's time
for your homecoming,
may there be peace in
your passing and a warm
welcome in heaven

from the Carmina  Gadelica, collected by Nicheal Carmicheal in 1900
