Saint Brigid was born in Ireland to a pagan chieftain and a Christian slave. She founded the Abbey of Kildare that was ruled by a double line of abbot-bishops and abbesses; thus the reason why she holds the crosier. Her school of art, learning, and spirituality at Kildare produced an illuminated manuscript praised as one of the finest examples of it's kind. (It has been lost since the reformation.) St. Brigid is known as the "Mary of the Gael" and holds the straw cross which people place in their homes for blessings and protection. She is buried with St. Patrick and St. Columba.
