A Brigit of Ireland Devotional - Sun Among Stars

COVER Nick Welch SUN AMONG STARS.jpg
She is the gateway to inspiration, the eternal sparkling flame.

A Brigit of Ireland Devotional – Sun Among Stars evokes this much-loved Goddess and Saint, drawing on her history, mythology, and traditions, and on the author’s intimate bond with her. Thoughtful essays, a daily devotional practice, and extensive resources make it a useful reference as well as an inspiring text.

Mael Brigde is a long-time friend and a deeply dedicated devotee of Brigid. Her work with the Daughters of the Flame has been an inspiration to me for decades, and her poetry is clear and powerful. Her writing has consistently been a beacon for me, like the sunlight upon which Brigid hung her cloak. If you love Brigid, whether as Goddess or Saint, Mael Brigde’s poems will have words to deepen and broaden your connection with her.

With Brigit I am able to feel my way back home.

Invitation


come visit me Brigit
the cat will yield you the comfy chair
raise his head for your benediction
I’ll pour hot bubbling water over mint
pull back the curtains   slide open the door
let in the cool garden air to refresh you
you can be yourself
goddess   saint   or some unexpectedly
ordinary woman   with tired hands
with chipped and missing teeth
we can muse together over the demands
of tending a hearth in modern times
you can have my bed
I’ll sleep on the camping mat
there’s so much I’d love to learn from you
how it all unfolded   how it looks to you now
or we could just be quiet
enjoying the night
and the sound of distant cars
on the rain-wet road

By the Moon’s Light

 

by the moon’s light I travel

by the sun’s true gleam

by your hand I am lifted

from depth to height

In these pages you will find prayers to form a daily liturgy, poetic tales to tell by candlelight, woven words to reach for when the soul falters in its faith. Read them aloud. Let their internal music take you swirling through time to the hearthside of the bards. Mael Brigde is their kith and kin, and her work here is as multitudinous as Brigit herself.
