St Brigid, Virgin, Secondary Patron of All Ireland
Dilexisti justitiam, et odisti iniquitatem: properea unxit te Deus, Deus tuus, oleo laetitiae prae consortibus tuis. * Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum: dico ego opera mea Regi.
Thou hast loved justice and hated iniquity: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. * My heart hath uttered a good word: I speak my works to the King.
(Psalm 44:8,2 from the Introit of Mass)
Deus, qui nos hodierna die beatae Brigidae Virginis tuae annua solmnitate laetificas: concede propitius; ut ejus adjuvemur meritis, cujus castitatis irradiamur exemplis.
O God, who on this day dost gladden us by the yearly festival of they holy virgin Brigid: grant in thy bounty that we who are enlightened by the example of her chastity, may be helped by her merits.
(Collect of Mass)
