The Story Brought by Brigit Lady Gregory
"Our tradition and that of Gaelic Scotland, speak of St. Brigit as 'the foster-mother of Christ', and I have been told by poor women of Slieve Echtge that she succoured both Blessed Mother and Child when they were brought here by a Heavenly Messenger for safety in Herod's time, and that she 'kept an account of every drop of blood he lost through his lifetime'. So it is not going very far from that tradition to suppose she may have been present at the end of his life as at the beginning, and have told the story in her own way, as she had seen it in the body or in vision." A. Gregory
