SM. ST BRIGID’s CROSS DECORATION (includes ribbon) (3 in. H x 3 in. W) – WGS.729
ST BRIGID’s CROSS DECORATION (includes ribbon): Traditional feast day, 1 February – When a new cross of straw was made each year to be hung on a wall or over the door to bless one’s house and all who enter. Each is cast in pure bronze, a precious metal prized by the ancient Celtics in Ireland 4000 years ago.
TRADITION: The legend of the woven St Brigid’s cross is believed to have begun during a visit by Bridgid to a dying pagan chieftan. To teach the chieftan about Christ and the Christian way, she took the straw covering the floor and quickly wove a simple cross for him.
ST BRIGID’s BLESSING:
May Brigid bless the house wherein you dwell
Bless every fireside, every wall and door
Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy
Bless every foot that walks its portals through
