Let me tell you a little bit about my girl St. Brigid of Kildare. She’s revered, not only as a Catholic saint, but also as a Pagan Goddess, and for good reason. Everyone knows that she had the magic cloak deal going on when she wanted land to build a convent, but you know what they don’t teach you in primary school? She was metal as fuck.

Once, a man mocked her vow of chastity and said that she’d be married whether she liked it or not: “The beautiful eye in your head will be betrothed to a man though you like it or not.” In response, she gouged out her own eye because it was less likely that a man would marry a half-blind girl, and then laid a curse on the guy who mocked her in such a disrespectful way so that his eyes burst in his head, leaving him blind.

As well as her being as metal as tungsten, she was also super legit for her time. There is a story of her helping a nun who had broken her vow of chastity. Brigid, using “the most potent strength of her ineffable faith, blessed her, causing the child to disappear, without coming to birth, and without pain”. Yes, that’s an abortion to you and me, and yes, she was highly praised for her ability to carry out such a miracle. I bet they don’t tell you that in religion class!

What I’m saying is that if you don’t think St. Brigid was pretty rad, whether you’re religious or not, you can get right outta town.

I'm Josephine.
Studying Early and Modern Irish in Trinity <3
I wear frilly dresses, drink too much tea, and either sleep too much or not enough.
I post Lolita (including outfit posts), pretty fashions, and other cute stuff.

One of my biggest problems is not knowing whether I want to be a Magical Girl, Morticia Addams, or Professor McGonagall.
