Vignettes from the Lives of the Irish Saints: Saint Brigid Heals One of her Sisters

The Saint's tender care of her religious was manifested by another miracle. One of the sisters was very ill, and asked for a little milk, but none was to be had. But Brigit desired a sister to fill a vessel with water and give it to the sufferer. When she received it the water had been changed to milk, which was as warm as if it were just taken from the cow, and the draught cured her of her sickness.
