July 23: St. BRIDGET OF SWEDEN. Co-patroness of Europe.
Prayers for the Re-Christianization of Europe.
As a young girl aged ten, Bridget had a vision of Jesus hanging from the cross. She asked Jesus who had treated Him like this, and Jesus answered: “They who despise me, and spurn my love for them (Fr. Paolo O. Pirlo, SHMI “St. Bridget”. My First Book of Saints. Sons of Holy Mary Immaculate – Quality Catholic Publications. pp. 158–159).” She was so impressed by the Passion and Death of Christ on the Cross which later became the center of her spiritual life.
