St Brigid of Ireland

On Heaven...

"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."

Amen and amen.

St Brigid, pray for us.

Sophie is supposed to dress up like St Brigid for All Saints' Day. Now I'm not sure how to dress her.

When my daughter was small we dressed her as a nun using sheets fastened with safety pins. I think we went to a fabric store and bought some black cloth for her veil, also safety-pinned. You might also make a St Brigid's Cross out of cardboard for her.

A big amen from me here too! I like that: a great lake of beer.

I think it would be fascinating to think more about what beer meant to the people of her day. At that point, beer was safer to drink than water--more purified in some sense.
