Born the daughter of an Irish Chieftan circa 453AD Saint Brigid became a nun whose desire was to relieve the misery and hardship of the poor. Her feast day, the date of her death, is February 1st and in fact in Ireland we now have a national holiday in her honor.
The popular tradition of the woven St. Brigid’s cross is believed to have begun during a visit by Brigid to a dying pagan chieftan. To illustrate the significance of the Christian faith she quickly wove a simple cross from the rushes strewn on the floor. a popular floor covering of the time.
From this time on the woven rush cross has become synonymous with the saint. Commonly hung over the doorway in many Irish homes it is believed to bless and bring luck to every person who crosses the threshold.
May Brigid bless the house where in you dwell.
Bless every fireside every wall every door.
Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof.
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy.
Bless every foot that walks its portals through.
May Brigid bless the house that shelters you.
