We selected St. Brigit as our patron because of her fantastical legends and myths associated with both Brigit the Pagan Goddess and Brigid the Irish Saint. St. Brigit is known for being an inspiration to artists and writers, agricultural workers, scholars, sailors and healers.
In ancient times Bhrigid was synonymous with "Goddess". Brigit is considered the Triple Goddess; hence the triangular shapes in our crest. She embodies the Maiden for purity & innocence, the Mother for comfort & fruitfulness, and the Crone for wisdom & healing.
Brigit was the Goddess of poets, healing, and smithcraft. She transitions into Christianity as St. Brigit of Kildare. Both as a pagan Goddess and the Christian Saint, there were stories of the many miracles, her generosity, and kindness.
A tradition holds on the eve of St. Brigid's Day (Candlemas) rushes or straw are woven into "St. Brigid's Crosses". They are then hung above the doors to bring protection to the family within. When you visit Ireland you will find many St Brigid crosses in windows and in homes in many shapes and sizes.
