Brigid of Ireland

Since Brigid of Ireland was published, I've often been asked if she was a real person. The Brigidine Sisters of Kildare, Ireland, offer an excellent explanation on their Web site. They also discuss Celtic Spirituality. These writings are credited to be an "Extract from 'Rekindling the Flame - A pilgrimage in the footsteps of Brigid of Kildare' by Rita Minehan, CSB."

One of the characteristics of Celtic spirituality, according to the Sisters, is:
An extraordinary sense of the presence of God in their lives. God was uile láithreach - "the all present One".
