A Flame-Keeper

Tonight I begin my first shift as a flamekeeper with Ord Brighideach, an international Brigidene order dedicated to serving Brighid. For me, it is a deepening path of devotion. She continues to call me as goddess, yet in my Christian fringes she is still there as saint. She is Healing, Fire, and Awen. She is not a cosy goddess, but burns us into the authentic being we are created to be. I have walked with her since my baptism in St Ffraid’s Church, Treaddur Bay (Ffraid is the Welsh for Brighid), through my Carmelite profession at Imbolc many years ago, and she calls me in my inner journeying.

I dedicate myself anew to her this sundown, the beginning of the Celtic day.

May I carry Her Healing into the world. May I carry her Flame out into the  world. May I carry her Inspiration, her Awen, out into the world. May I serve Her in whatever ways she calls me to.
