Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time


Prayer to St. Brigid

St. Brigid’s Day Thursday, 1st February

You were a woman of peace.

You brought harmony where there was conflict.

You brought light to the darkness.

You brought hope to the downcast.

May the mantle of your peace cover those who are troubled and anxious,

And may peace be firmly rooted in our hearts and in our world.

Inspire us to act justly

and to reverence all God has made.

Brigid, you were a voice for the wounded

and the weary.

Strengthen what is weak within us.

Calm us into a quietness that heals

and listens.

May we grow each day into greater wholeness in mind, body and spirit.

Amen.
