St. Margaret of Scotland, (1050?-1093) Patroness of Mothers; Queen of Scotland “When [Margaret] spoke, her conversation was with the salt of wisdom. When she was silent, her silence was filled with good thoughts. So thoroughly did her outward bearing correspond with the staidness of her character that it seemed as if she has been born the pattern of a virtuous life” (Turgot, St. Margaret’s confessor).
The Bean-Nighe or "Washing Woman" is a type of Banshee who haunts the lonely streams of Scotland and Ireland, washing the blood-stained garments of those about to die. It is said that these spirits are the ghosts of women who died in childbirth and that they are fated to perform their task until the day when they would have normally died.
