Imbolc-Brigid Of Ireland
A full colour print of original illustration honouring Brigid of Kildare, the patroness saint of Ireland.
Brigid held that the goods of this world were made to be circulated. Otherwise their source would wither and die.
At Brigid’s festivals we gather together under her expansive cloak and aim to honour and respect diversity. We weave her crosses. They remind us to cultivate spiritual and physical fertility for our vulnerable earth.
We take pieces of bread (which Brigid always multiplied to feed the hungry); a little milk, (to honour her red-eared white cow whose pure milk was the only milk St Brigid could tolerate); and a little honey to honour the Brigid of Munster, St Gobnait.
Finally, we go through her crios making commitments for the coming year. Her circular crios reminds us to align ourselves with our bodies, communities and to the cosmos.
