Brigid of Kildare – The Face of Christ in All – Christine Valters Paintner

November 3, 2019

“Brigid sees the face of Christ in all persons and creatures, and overcomes the division between rich and poor. Our practice of inner hospitality as monks in the world is essentially about healing all of the places we feel fragmented, scattered, and shamed. One of her symbols is her cloak which becomes a symbol of unity. All can dwell under her mantle.”

 Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics
