St Brigid’s Cloak
When St Brigid decided to build her convent, she asked the king of Leinster for some land to build it on. The king was a sly man, and he did not want tolisten to Brigid. He laughed at her when she asked for some land. He said, ‘I will give you as much land as your cloak can cover.’ The king knew that Brigid’s cloak was so small that it would only cover a very small piece of land. But, when Brigid spread her cloak on the ground, it grew and grew and grew, and soon there was more than enough land for her to build her church on! The king knew then that Brigid was a very holy woman.
