Revelations and Prophecies Imparted to St. Bridget

Book Four

Chapter Nineteen

          In Book Four, Chapter Nineteen of the Revelations and Prophesies of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, she venerates the Mother of God with the highest praise of Our Lady's virtue and beauty, and the Blessed Virgin Mary's answer confirms St. Bridget's praise, calling to mind the source of all beauty comes from true Beauty, God Himself, and then Mary's divine Son affirms both the bride and His Immaculate Mother's words and makes a magnificent comparison to Mary as a goldsmith crafting the most beautiful object possible.

    "Sweet Mary, fresh beauty, shining beauty! Come and listen to me, so that my ugliness may be purified and my love enkindled! Your beauty gives three gifts to the head. First, the cleansing of the memory so that God's words enter smoothly; second, the pleasant retention of the words heard; third, their zealous communication to one's neighbor.

    "Your beauty also grants three things to the heart. First, it removes the heavy burden of sloth, when your love and humility are contemplated; second, it brings tears to the eyes, when your poverty and patient suffering are brought to mind; third, it gives the heart a sweet inner fire, when the memory of your devotion is sincerely recalled.

    "Truly, my Lady, you are the most precious beauty, the most desirable beauty, for you are the help given to the sick, the comforter in sorrow, everyone's mediator. Thus, all those who have heard that you would be born, and those who know you to have already been born, can surely exclaim: 'Come, beauty most splendid, and light up our darkness. Come, beauty most precious, and take away our reproach. Come, beauty most sweet, and lessen our bitterness. Come, beauty most powerful, and undo our captivity. Come, beauty most fair, and destroy our foulness!" Therefore, may such great beauty be blessed and reverenced, the beauty that all the patriarchs longed to see, of which all the prophets sang, in which all the elect rejoice!"

    The Mother answers: "May God, my beauty, be blessed! It is He Who has given you such words to speak! And so I tell you that the most ancient beauty, the eternal and highest Beauty, which made and created me, shall be your comfort. The Beauty that is oldest and yet new, renewing all things, which was in me and was born of me, shall teach you wonders. The most desirable Beauty, which gives joy and delight to all, shall inflame the spirit of your love. So trust in God, for when the heavenly Beauty appears, all earthly beauty will crumble and be regarded as dung."

    Then God's Son said to His Mother: "O blessed Mother, you are like a goldsmith preparing a beautiful object. All those who see the object are filled with gladness and present precious stones or gold in order to perfect it. Thus, dear Mother, you offer help to everyone struggling to rise to God, and leave no one without your consolation. You can therefore well be called the blood of the heart of God. Just as each member of the body receives life and strength from the blood, so too everyone comes to life again after sin and is made more fruitful before God through you."
