The goddess of fire was Saint Brigit, this beloved goddess was transferred over to Christianity from Paganism as she still had been greatly valued by the society that which worshipped her. This Irish divinity was a triple goddess who held the title of the protector of childbirth, which in human history, the creation of life is the greatest and most valued responsibility. She is considered to be a poet, a smith, and a healer; but also possesses the gift of light. Brigit created the development of the whistle to summon her allies during war. She was greatly respected and loved by the Celts for her kind and passionate personality. Her main purpose was to protect children, she also had a great admiration for the hearth fire as she used it as the flame of life. She also is associated with healing waters, hope, and enlightenment.
