Revelations and Prophecies Imparted to St. Bridget

Book Four

Chapter Eighty-Two

          In Chapter Eighty-Two of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, our Lord visits the bride to share with her what He expects in a bride and that is a devout soul. That soul should watch over the senses just as if it were her body as He reminds her of her senses, including a mouth that speaks only truth with lips that protect the tongue from saying things one would regret in Christ's presence - which is always; eyes that guard modesty to protect from temptation; and ears that refuse to hear gossip. He explains how important these senses are in not taking anything in that would be harmful and a mind that keeps its focus on Jesus and the great love He extends as evident from His Passion and Death in His beautiful explanation of the senses of mouth, eyes and ears for a clean body, a steadfast heart, a faithful soul and a mind focused on only things of good will.

    The Son speaks: "Like a bride, you should have a lovely mouth, clean ears, modest eyes, and a steadfast heart.

    A soul, too, should have the same qualities. Her mouth is her clean mind where nothing but what pleases Me may enter. May her mouth, that is, her mind be lovely with the odor of good thoughts from the attentive recollection of My passion.

    May her mind also be like a mouth that is red with the fervor of divine charity so as to put what it understands into effect. As sure as no one longs to kiss a colorless mouth, neither does a soul please Me at all unless she performs good deeds of her own good will alone.

    Like a mouth, her mind should have two lips, that is, these two affections: a longing for heavenly things, and scorn for all earthly things. Her lower palate should be the fear of death that separates the soul from the body and fear of the state in which she will then find herself. Her upper palate should be a fear of the terrible judgment.

    The soul's tongue should keep itself between these two palates. What is the soul's tongue if not the frequent consideration of My mercy? Therefore, when you meditate on my mercy and how I created and redeemed you, how patient I am with you, consider also what a strict judge I am and how I do not leave anything unpunished, and consider, too, how uncertain the hour of death is.

    The soul's eyes should be as innocent as those of a dove that sees a hawk close by the waters. In other words, may your thoughts be ever on My love and My sufferings, and on the deeds and words of My chosen ones.

    With their help you will understand how the devil is capable of deceiving you, and so you never can be sure of yourself.

    Your ears should be clean so that you do not wish to hear vulgar and ludicrous things.

    Your heart should be steadfast so that you do not fear death by keeping the faith nor blush at the world's reproaches nor worry about the loss of your body for the sake of Me, your God."
