Today the Irish celebrate St. Bridget of Ireland, who lived between 450 and 525. There are many delightful stories about this Irish nun, including one that claims a bishop ordained her!
But there is a beautiful prayer of hers, a description of what heaven might be for the saintly Irish:
I should like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.
I should like the angels of Heaven to be drinking it
through time eternal.
I should like excellent meats of belief and pure piety.
I should like flails of penance at my house.
I should like the men of Heaven at my house;
I should like barrels of peace at their disposal;
I should like vessels of charity for distribution;
I should like cheerfulness to be in their drinking.
I should like Jesus to be there among them.
I should like the three Marys of illustrious renown to be with us.
I should like the people of Heaven, the poor,
to be gathered around us from all parts.
Note that there is not only beer in heaven but the poor have a special place.
