"May the mantle of your peace cover those who are troubled and anxious."

St. Brigid is a dearly beloved saint of Ireland, one who is invoked nearly as much as St. Patrick!

Here is a traditional prayer to St. Brigid that is very popular and has been passed down over the years, asking her to grant peace to those suffering anxiety.

Saint Brigid.You were a woman of peace.You brought harmony where there was conflict.You brought light to the darkness.You brought hope to the downcast.May the mantle of your peace cover those who are troubled and anxious, and may peace be firmly rooted in our hearts and in our world.Inspire us to act justly and to reverence all God has made.Brigid you were a voice for the wounded and the weary.Strengthen what is weak within us.Calm us into a quietness that heals and listens.May we grow each day into greater wholeness in mind, body and spirit.
