Saints of the Day – Blath of Kildare

Article

(also known as Flora) Died 523. Saint Blath was the lay-sister who served as cook at Saint Brigid’s convent in Kildare. She earned a reputation for heroic sanctity, and of her cooking it is said that bread and bacon at Brigid’s table were better than a banquet elsewhere (Benedictines, D’Arcy).
