Revelations and Prophecies Imparted to St. Bridget

Book Four

Chapter Eighty-Six

          In Chapter Eighty-Six of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, the Mother of God returns to console the holy widow of Sweden as Our Lady likens herself to a flower from which bees gather sweet honey. Keeping this simile in tact, Mary shares that the bees are the servants and chosen ones of God who continually gather the nectar of grace from the Blessed Virgin Mary and, like worker bees they labor for the Queen Bee, the Immaculate Queen of Heaven, with their spiritual wings, feet, knowing that if they fail they will lose their sting and die in the state that will not be sweet to God Who wants us to honor the only woman ever conceived immaculately.

    The Mother speaks: "I am the Queen and Mother of mercy. My Son, the Creator of the universe, feels such sweet affection toward me that He has given me a spiritual understanding of all creatures.

    "I am thus very like a flower from which bees gather sweet nectar in the greatest abundance. No matter how much they gather from it, there still remains nectar on it. So too I am able to gain grace for everyone and yet always abound in grace.

    "My chosen ones are indeed like bees, for they love me with all devotion and care for my honor.

    "Like bees they have two feet, for they have a continual desire to increase my honor and also labor assiduously for it, working all they can.

    "They have two wings as well, in that they consider themselves unworthy to praise me and also are obedient in all that refers to my honor.

    "They even have a sting and die if they lose it.

    "Yes, the friends of God's have the tribulations of the world that, for the safeguarding of the virtues, will not be taken away from them until the end of their lives. Yet I, who abound in consolation, shall console them."
