The Pope dedicated this week`s General Audience to the Life and Works of St Bridget of Sweden (1303 -1373)
It is the latest talk in the series relating to holy women in the Medieval Period. The full talk is at Zenit at this link http://www.zenit.org/article-30775?l=english
It is of interest to note that Bridget, although both foundress and lawgiver, was never a member of her order, never wore the habit of the order and which she had described from her visions, never was a nun, in fact. And perhaps never prayed the office she left for her Nuns.
