Vignettes from the Lives of the Irish Saints: Saint Brigid's Healing Shadow

In one of the ancient lives of St. Brigit, a miraculous cure is attributed to her shadow. It is said that a "layman" came to the Saint carrying his mother, who was paralysed. When he came to where St. Brigit was, he placed his mother on the grass in the Saint's shadow, and she was cured immediately.
