Happy Feast Day of St Bridget of Ireland

February 1 is the feast day of St Bridget of Ireland.  I am just getting this post in under the wire!  It's late, tomorrow is church, and Ian is waiting to do prayers.  So, this will be short:

Bridget was born in Ireland around 450 AD, and was a disciple of St Patrick.  From an early age, she was drawn to helping the poor and living a consecrated life.  She is also known as Bridget of Kildare, where she established a monastery.  Many miracles have been attributed to her.  St Bridget pray for us!
