July 23 - Saint Bridget of Sweden (d. 1373) 


“My Son and I have redeemed the world as with one heart”

Saint Bridget of Sweden claims to have heard these words from the lips of the Mother of God:

"I can say, quite boldly, that his pain was my pain and his heart was my heart. Like Adam and Eve who sold the world for one fruit, My Son and I redeemed the world with almost one heart. So, my daughter, imagine how I felt at the death of my son and then it won’t seem too heavy a sacrifice for you to leave the world." (Sermo angelicus, I, 1, c 35, ed. Eklund, p. 56).

Saint Bridget says she even heard this from the mouth of the Son of God:

"I can say that my Mother and I saved humanity as with one heart, I who suffered in my heart and in my flesh, and she with the pain and love in her heart." (Revelationes extravagantes, ed. C. Durante, Romae 1606, c 3, p. 804).
