Saint Bridget of Sweden

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

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.
