Saint Brigid of Kildare
or Brigid of Ireland (also known as Brigit, Bridget, Bridgit, Bríd or Bride; Naomh Bríd in Irish) is next Saint Patrick and Saint Columba one of Ireland's patron saint.
your holiday is 1 February or Candlemas - as with the Goddess Bride - traditionally the first day of spring in Ireland.
According to tradition, Brigid was born around the year 451 in Faughart in Dundalk, County Louth, Ireland. Her father was Dubhthach , the Chieftain of Leinster, of the old faith, clung to her mother Bocca, a Christian Piktin, which had by Patrick baptized. When Brigid was born out of her forehead, a powerful beam of light shot that illuminated the whole house - what would have naturally led to some talk in the village.
your father wanted to name it after the goddess Brigid (Bride). Perhaps, among other things because of this light beam for ... Bride is the Irishman as a flame of knowledge , that flame of knowledge.

Whether it was brought up already Christian or converted in the year 468, as stated in some reports, can not say exactly. The only certainty is that she was impressed by a very small of the sermons Saint Patricks and also their special abilities in healing and compassion were very early.
They say that they heal by laying on of hands and helped her blessing to the poor to improve their living situation. Her father was of course not particularly thrilled that she wanted to live a (Christian) religious life. there it is even have annoyed that she was so generous and could send no beggars. In his view, was a little too much of a good thing if it be his milk and meal to all the world and distributed. (Mag indeed be that she has exaggerated the largesse.) When they passed on even his jeweled sword to a leper, he thought that she should perhaps best be a nun. Unlike the girl could hardly afford. So they finally put her head through (behind this generosity may well have put quite calculation) and was sent to a convent.

Brigid received the veil from Saint Mel - is but is also an -Ban have been drui, which at that time was not uncommon - and took her vows. From then on, turn over their biographers with events and legends. A very cute, which is once again emphasizes the fiery aspect of the goddess Bride through their Begegnnung with the Bishop, who wanted to run before being incorporated into the monastery examine the accession talks and whether they are as suitable for the religious life. It was from the field, where they supplied the cows called in, and when she entered, she has been illuminated by a sunbeam, that it looked as if she had around a fiery halo around her head. When she took off her coat and hung up, said the Bishop, that he was hanging on a sunbeam. Thus, the admission interview was done ...
After she became a nun, she is said to have founded their first convent in Clara, County Offaly. Other start-ups were not long in coming. The best known is Kildare Abbey, which she founded in the year 470th It was a double monastery for both nuns and monks for the plains of Cill-Dara , the "church of the oak." Their cell was built under a large oak. (One of the sacred trees of the Druids.)
practiced as abbess of the monastery, they made a very great power and here again there are legends. So shall Saint Mel when they accidentally Äbtissinnenweihe the rite of episcopal ordination have read that can not be undone anymore. Whether or not it was because, Brigid and her successors were similar to the Synod of Kell in 1152 a management entirely to a bishop. I think it was in the old Celtic-Christian spirit perfectly normal to give women the higher orders.

Brigid was famous for their common sense and above all for its "holiness." It was considered too much like a saint during his lifetime. Kildare Abbey became one of the most prestigious monasteries in Ireland and was known throughout Christian Europe and famous. It is even often assumed that the Book of Kells was written here.

She died on 1 February 525 - to Imbolc - and was first buried on the high altar of her abbey church. But later her body after Downpatrick was taken, so she could rest on the side of the two other patron saints of Ireland.

in 2006, the eternal flame of the lit on the square in Kildare after a long time and burns since then.
