On Wednesday we celebrated the feast of St. Brigid and welcomed
the arrival of Spring, a season of new life. The earth begins to hum,
the buds appear and the noble daffodil lifts her graceful face to
the sun. We feel the joy of life and a renewed energy as the days
grow longer and nature unfolds a rich bounty of colour and new life.
St. Brigid was a woman of peace who brought harmony, light, healing
and compassion. She taught us to act justly and to have reverence
for all that God has created. May we grow each day into a greater
wholeness in mind, body and spirit. May we be a voice for the
wounded and the weary and a light to guide the way.
