Saint Bridget of Sweden was one of the most privileged mystics in the history of the Church. Born to a wealthy family, she was given in marriage to a pious and good-hearted nobleman, with whom she raised eight children, including the future Saint Catherine of Sweden. When her husband died, Bridget founded an order of nuns, the Order of the Most Holy Savior, more commonly called the Bridgettines. She labored until her death to spread her order and boost morality and devotion in the decadent 14th century Church. She also labored to bring the papacy back to Rome from Avignon. In all her efforts, she was wise, charitable, and outstanding in sanctity.
Devout from a young age, Saint Bridget also received numerous visions of Our Lord and Our Lady, including intimate details of Our Lady's early life, the Holy Family in Nazareth, and the Passion, first recorded in 1492. Revelations of St. Bridget provides excerpts from these eye-opening visions, which bring into focus many unknown facets of the hidden life of Our Lord and His Mother. These visions have been approved as orthodox and worthy of pious belief by the Holy See. The insights received by Saint Bridget are matched by very few other mystics', showing her privileges before the Throne of God. This volume also includes the famous 15 Prayers attributed to her, popular devotions in the late Middle Ages and our own era.
Do not miss these stirring and vivid accounts from one of the greatest foundresses of the Church's history. Imbued throughout her visions is the undeniable spirit of piety, devotion, and saintliness that characterized St. Bridget's earthly life—and by which she merited to become privy to such sublime mysteries.

These revelations giving details of Mary's confinement, delivery and Jeseus; passion are excellent. Elder family members, late 80s are reading these for the first time. Why aren;t these revelations of the Saints shared on Sunday? And review of the deeper meaning of the commandments and precepts of our faith taught so many years ago in school. Bible history also is rich in facts. In my opinion Sunday mass could be a rich learning experience. Most of my memories are of beg-a-thons. I believe the infiltration of satan into the clergy is the true third revelation from Our Lady of Fatima. The media is the false prophet of revelation and I am persuaded that our bodies are the 3rd temple spoken of in this book. Satan will enter the temple by merging our bodies with machinery, computers, AI which is openly discussed by Bezos. It is being tested on swine. A simple Google search will back my statement. God relieves us of an awesome burden by taking on judgement. Pray for those who have been tricked into the deceptions of satan. Have a blessed day, and a peaceful life. I recommend this booklet.
