Happy Feast Day!

A blessed St. Brigid's Feast Day to you!

Holy Savior Cathedral, Bruges, Belgium
keeps in reverence a wool, Irish cloak believed
to be St. Brigid's own.

For our feast, we'll have quiche, boxty pancakes, stuffed mushrooms and homemade bread.  And later, cake!

A common blessing among friends was the hope that they would be fa bhrat Bhrighde, "under Brigid's Cloak", as her mantle was long remembered as a sign of protection and generous hospitality.

The Light of Christ shines gloriously through his saints!
