UPDATE ON BRIGID

Not only was the female saint we commemorated yesterday a canonically ordained bishop. Not only did she enjoy beer, parties and hanging around with the lads. I have now found out via my mate, KittKatt at the JESUS IN LOVE BLOG, that she was into sleeping in the same bed as a young nun with whom she shared a Newmanian* "close and special relationship."

Our sort of gal!

Our sort of saint!

UPDATE ON BRIGID — 5 Comments

  1. Good to hear: I was tired of citing “Ruth & Naomi”!

    Now—how the heck to you pronounce Brigid’s partner’s name? O_o

    wv, “sablessn”. As in, “It….to learn of Brigid & Darlughdach!” ;-D

  2. she was into sleeping in the same bed as a young nun with whom she shared a Newmanian* “close and special relationship.”

    FYI, I believe they preferred “Newwimmanian”.

    ;-/

  3. I believe it’s pronounced DAR-lu-dock. Her name means daughter of Lugh (the sun god).

    Thanks for highlighting my post about Brigid and her darling Darlughdach.
