    Saint of the Month Saint Bridget of Sweden

    (c. 1303 – July 23, 1373)

    Saint Bridget of Sweden’s Story

    From age 7 on, Bridget had visions of Christ crucified. Her visions formed the

    basis for her activity—always with the emphasis on charity rather than spiritual favors.

    She lived her married life in the court of the Swedish king Magnus II. Mother of

    eight children—the second eldest was Saint Catherine of Sweden—Bridget lived the strict life of a penitent after her

    husband’s death.

    Bridget constantly strove to exert her

    good influence over Magnus; while never fully reforming, he did give her land and buildings to found a monastery

    for men and women. This group eventually expanded into an Order

    known as the Bridgetines.

    In 1350, a year of jubilee, Bridget braved a plague-stricken Europe to

    make a pilgrimage to Rome. Although she never returned to Sweden, her

    years in Rome were far from happy, being hounded by debts and by opposition to her work against Church


    A final pilgrimage to the Holy Land, marred by shipwreck and the death of

    her son, Charles, eventually led to her death in 1373. In 1999, Bridget, Saints

    Catherine of Siena and Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, were named co- patronesses of Europe.


    Bridget’s visions, rather than isolating her from the affairs of the world,

    involved her in many contemporary issues, whether they be royal policy or

    the years that the legitimate Bishop of Rome lived in Avignon, France. She saw no contradiction between mystical

    experience and secular activity, and her life is a testimony to the possibility of a

    holy life in the marketplace.


    St. Bridget of Sweden, ora pro nobis!
