Saint Bridget of Sweden (c. 1303 – 23 July 1373), also known as Saint Birgitta, was a 14th-century mystic, and founder of the Bridgettines. Born into a noble Swedish family, she married and had eight children before becoming a widow. Bridget devoted her life to prayer, penance, and serving the poor. She had a deep devotion to the Passion of Christ and received numerous mystical revelations and visions. Bridget founded the Order of the Most Holy Savior, also known as the Brigittines, which combined contemplative life with active apostolate. Her writings, particularly the Revelations of Saint Bridget, provide spiritual insights and guidance for believers. Saint Bridget is venerated for her holiness, prophecies, and her tireless efforts to promote reform within the Church. Her feast day is celebrated on July 23rd, and she is remembered as a model of piety, Christian charity, and devotion to the suffering Christ.
