Lá Fhéile Bríde

Many thanks to our volunteers who helped out on Wednesday afternoon with our St. Brigid cross making. We had lots of fun and it is always lovely to have grandparents visit our classroom.

Feast Day 1st February

Poem about the conversion of Gaelic Chieftan from paganism to Christianity
9
Brigid wove a cross of rushes by a dying chieftain’s bed”
“Brigid what is that you’re making
From the rushes there?”, he said.
Brigid said,”A cross I’m weaving, like the cross where Jesus died.”
“Who was Jesus?” asked the chieftain,
“Why was this man crucified?”
Brigid told the gospel story to a dying pagan King.
Lying silently he listened,
Never saying anything.
Then he kissed the cross of rushes
Saying ,”Brigid, thanks to you,
I have come to love this Jesus,
I will follow his way too!”
