February 1 – Saint Brigid of Ireland


Beloved Father, just before Saint Brigid of Ireland was born, her Christian mother was sold to a Druid landowner.  Even though she grew up oppressed as a slave, she found great joy in loving You.  As the patron saint of babies, she has a special concern for the gift of new life, so I ask her to pray for the babies in my family, both born and unborn.  May they grow up with Jesus and obtain the joy of knowing Him.  I place into Your loving hands, Father, all the babies who died prematurely, through abortion, miscarriage or medical conditions.  Ask them, Lord, to intercede for me and my family.  Saint Brigid of Ireland, pray for us.  Amen.
