This is a Reflective Prayer activity on taking steps of faith
This resource may be used as the basis for a Quiet Day, a shorter prayer activity or as separate reflections. You may find it helpful to link the prayers with considerations as to the way ahead for Mothers’ Union in your own area as well as with specific local, national or global Mothers’ Union projects and initiatives
St Brigid – one of the few female Irish saints – was known for her generosity to the poor and needy. She founded two monastic institutions – one for men and one for women – in Kildare. She is often depicted holding a reed cross which is now known as a ‘St Brigid’s Cross’. Legend has it that she used to weave these crosses and tie them with ribbons to give to those she met on the road. Weaving a St Brigid’s Cross can be a creative way of focussing prayer.
