Sure and She’s a True Irishwoman

Today is the feast day of my confirmation name saint, St. Brigid of Ireland, patron saint of scholars, poets, babies, blacksmiths, milkmaids, and midwives. I admire St. Brigid for her kindness, her merry spirit, her love of scholarship, her generosity to the poor and sick, her feistiness—and this quote:
"I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.
I would like to be watching Heaven’s family drinking it through all eternity."
A great lake of beer—now that’s what I call a prayer!

What a great quote. I might have to look into Brigid.

Funny, my husband just read me that quote the other day. It’s one of his favorites.
Happy Feast Day! One of ours celebrated a feast day yesterday too. 🙂

Completely coincidental that this post was followed by some interesting news on the giant elephant in the room front, no?
