God is at home with you, in every moment of your day, in all the mess and joy of your life. Like any relationship, prayer has its ups and downs. Everyone can do with a bit of company and support along the way.
Hopefully you will find in this pages some company for the rough days, and guidance for those days when you sense there is 'more' but are not sure where or how to look.

Saint Brigid....Feast day 1 February
Brigid's cross is placed above the threshold as a sign of coming and going with God. It is a symbol of welcome - outrageous welcome. The cross reminds us that we are on a journey in the company of a generous and big-hearted God who welcomes all, who wants you and welcomes your company. Come and go with him!
Many of the values associated with Brigid are captured in this delightful poem:
from winters dark,
Star of Imbolc, rise!
Dance around our threshold,
Scattering warm laughter,
Seeds of hospitality,
Return again to the folk;
You the spring we yearn for!
What a lovely image to carry with us into the future!
to journey into a ministry of ‘Outrageous Hospitality’.
May the elements sustain you at every quarter.
May the Earth uphold you upon your Path.
May the bees dance with you
on the Air of the Spirit of Wisdom.
May the Fire never leave your hearth or your heart.
May the Water of life
fill your cup and overflow to share.
Go well in the peace of the gentle woman.
Go well in the peace of
The spirit of all.
