"The repetition of the baptismal vow [before St. Brigid's Cross] is a reaching back again towards baptismal innocence and is the usual ritual of retreats. But here in the special circumstances it takes on an entirely new meaning. Recited in the open, while facing the airy spaciousness of mountain, sky and water, the pilgrim has the impression of having reached some complete solitude, despite the fact that there is probably a queue of people awaiting their turn beside him."
