Saint Brigid of Kildare

O God, High King of heaven and earth, you inspired in Saint Brigid such whole hearted dedication to your work that she is known as co-patroness of Ireland; through her intercession may we follow the example of her life of service and be united with her and the Virgin Mary in your presence. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
