Revelations and Prophecies Imparted to St. Bridget

Book Four

Chapter Fourteen

          In Book Four, Chapter Fourteen of the Revelations and Prophesies of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, Jesus imparts to the bride the comforting words to quell her fear, telling her not to be afraid of what she has seen and heard, because it comes from the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, as He illustrates how the devil can be symbolized by a snake and a lion, the consolation of the Holy Ghost as symbolized by a tongue, and Christ shows how to resist the devil by thrusting divine charity at the fangs of the serpent and the sharp teeth of a lion. The adversary will flee out of fear of having their teeth shattered, something we can hope and pray for so that they will no longer be able to devour. Keeping our tonque silent or moving in prayer and praise is the best way to silence satan.

    The Son of God speaks: "Why are you afraid and anxious that the devil may insert things into the words of the Holy Ghost? Have you ever heard of anyone who kept his tongue safe and sound by placing it between the teeth of an angry lion? Has anyone ever sucked sweet honey from the tail of a snake?

    "No, never. Now what does the lion or snake symbolize if not the devil - a lion in evil and a snake in cunning?

    "What does the tongue symbolize if not the consolation of the Holy Ghost? What does it mean to place one's tongue between the teeth of a lion if not to utter the words of the Holy Advocate - Who appeared in the shape of a tongue - in order to gain human favor and praise?

    "Anyone who speaks God's praises for human gratification has surely been bitten and deceived by the devil, because those words, though they come from God, are not coming from a mouth that has the love of God, and so that person's tongue, that is, the consolation of the Holy Spirit, will be taken away from him or her.

    "However, a person who desires nothing but God, and finds all worldly affairs bothersome, whose body does not seek to see or hear anything but what comes from God, whose soul rejoices in the infusion of the Holy Ghost, such a person cannot be deceived, for the evil spirit yields to the good spirit and does not dare to approach it.

    "What does sucking honey from a snake's tail mean if not waiting for the consolation of the Holy Spirit to come from the suggestions of the devil? That consolation will never come, because the devil would rather let himself be slain a thousand times over than offer any word of consolation to a soul the utterance of which might lead the soul to the meaning of life.

    "Fear not, for God, Who began a good work with you, will carry it through to a good end. But know that the devil is like an unleashed dog that comes running to you with his temptations and suggestions when he sees you lacking the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.

    "However, if you should place a hard object in his way to hurt or paralyze his teeth, he will immediately leap away from you and will not harm you. The hard object placed in the devil's way signifies divine charity and obedience to God's commands. When the devil sees that these virtues are perfect in you, his teeth, that is, his attempts and his intention, will immediately be frustrated, because he sees that you would suffer anything rather than go against God's commands."
