Brigid and the Butter
A legend about St. Brigid of Ireland
Written by Pamela Love
Illustrated by Apryl Stott
Brigid is captivated by the story Bishop Patrick tells her village about Jesus feeding many hungry people with five loaves and two fishes. She wants to feed many hungry people, but she is often hungry herself. She and her mother work hard each day on their master's farm. Many days they have only bread and butter for dinner. When a beggar woman asks for the only food Brigid has-a dish of butter-she knows she can feed the person in front of her and opens her heart with generosity and love like Jesus. Find out what happens in this story of the first miracle of St. Brigid of Ireland. Beautiful illustrations and an engaging story encourage children ages 4 to 7 to learn more about the life of this generous saint!
