The Brigit’s Cross

The Celtic Goddess Brigit the exalted one. Worshipped by the Brigantes Celtic tribe as a deity she is also the goddess of fertility and marks the start of Imbolc on February First. In Ireland she is seen as the daughter of Dagda and is a Healer, a Smith, a poet, Bard. St. Brigit in Ireland from 455-525 celebrates Fertility and Light (Grand Stretch in The evening) with the Brigit’s Cross which is believed to be a solar wheel a symbol of good fortune and healing. Placed in Peoples’ homes to ward of sickness. There are stories of crosses being used to determine the age of homes with a new cross being place in the roof of the house each year. The story of St Brigid weaving one of the crosses as a pagan Celtic King lay Dying in his bed is said to have brought the king comfort at which time he converted to Christianity. There are many stories atributed to St Brigit’s one of the lesser known is the fact she invented the modern day equivalent of the rosary beads. In ancient time prayer ropes were used by people to keep track of the number of prayers said. There was also a tradition of placing pebbles in a bowl if you had pebbles. St Brigit came up with the simple idea of stringing stones/Beads together with large ones for longer prayers and to denote a decade of the rosary. Thus, inventing the roasary beads where are still in use across the world today.
