The Pagan Trinity
An ancient Fertility goddess, also identified with Persephone, as Queen of Hades (underworld), and protector of witches.
The "Hecate" or "Hekate" is characterized as a Trinity, that
existed within pagan mythology as a three faced goddess. The three faces represented the "Maiden",
the "Matron" (or Mother), and "the "Crone".
The ancient concept of "The
Trinity" most certainly affected the decisions of the ancient Roman Catholic church. What
better way for Satan to overwhelm the True Hebrew Messianic movement by creating a Pseudo Greek-Roman
Messianic movement called Christianity (Anti-Messianism).
Trinitarians deny this, but facts are facts. See Anti-Messiah.
Irish Catholic St. Brigit medalion. The goddess
of the flame to the ancient Celts, she has survived into our
time as "St. Bridget" in
the Irish catholic church. To this day her 'eternal flame'
burns in Kildare, Ireland and her ancient sacred wells are still revered and visited. It
is believed by pagan catholics that Brigit, Lady of the Fairies - watches over their sacred
green places and, if you look into her Magickal Mirror, you can see the Faerie
Realm. Here she is presented as a cloverleaf Trinity.

Brigit is a Christopagan Era Irish
There is a Swedish St Bridget also. Brigit's fame has been far and wide. Even as far as Africa, having come to Haiti in the hearts of deported Irish and Scottish indentured servants. However she went through a radical transformation, and her distant relative Maman Brigitte bears little resemblance, being rather a goddess of vengence. She, did, however, retain the healing aspects, being called on to cure those at death's door.
Brigit is known by various names, Brigit being the most ancient form. The name variations are: Brighid, Bride (Scottish), Brid, Brigit, Bridget, Brigantia (English), Brigan, Brigindo (Gaul) and Brigandu. Her name derives from her worship by the pre-christian Brigantes, who honored her as identical with Juno, Queen of Heaven. Into the 18th Century, her sacred flame was tended, at first, by priestesses, who later became catholic nuns, when the pagan shrine became a convent, at Kildare, Ireland. These nineteen virgin priestesses (called nuns by the catholic church) were called 'Daughters of the Flame'. No man was ever allowed near. In fact, these women had other women in the village bring them their necessary supplies so they wouldn't have to deal with men. This no-men policy infuriated the catholic church. Because they would not submit themselves to inspection by a priest, the bishop ordered the sacred flame to be extinguished. Even so, Brigit remained Ireland's most popular saints, and in 1993, the Brigidine sisters of Ireland rekindled her flame at Kildare.
Brigit's triple aspects are of Inspiration, Smithcraft, and of Healing.
As the goddess of Inspiration, she blesses poetry, creativity, prophecy and the arts. She was even esteemed as the patron diety of language, having inspired the alphabet.
As the goddess of Smithcraft, she blesses blacksmiths, goldsmiths, and other crafters of the household.
As goddess of Healing, she blesses physical and spiritual healing, fertility of crop and livestock and mid-wifery.
Imbolc (Candlemas and Groundhog Day), the Celtic spring festival, honors Brigit. The Druids called this sacred holiday Oimelc, meaning "ewe's milk". Held on February 1st or 2nd, it celebrated the birthing and freshening of sheep and goats. The catholic version of Imbolc (Candlemas), also, involves much elaborate rituals and feasting, and to this very day, many Irish homes have a St Brigit's cross for protection, still made from rushes as in days of old.
Idol worship and rituals are at the heart of Hinduism and have tremendous religious
significance. All Hindu deities are themselves symbols of the abstract Absolute, and point
to a particular aspect of the Brahman. The Hindu Trinity (Trimurti) is represented by three
godheads: Brahma - the creator, Vishnu - the protector and Shiva - the
