Revelations and Prophecies Imparted to St. Bridget

Book Four

Chapter Ninety-Four

          In Chapter Ninety-Four of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, our dear Lord visits the bride again, sharing with her prayers that she should say when dressing and why the veil stands for curbing vanity and incontinence, which Jesus abhors; He shows her that her shoes are for strength in her service for Christ; her habit for humility and modesty in emulating virtues of self-control while eschewing any fallen human nature tendencies. Finally, He advises her what prayers to say at meal and before she lays down her head at night; all to strengthen her in holiness, build up graces to fend off the temptation the devil directs towards those committed to God.

    The Son of God speaks to the bride and says: "Exterior beauty symbolizes the interior beauty a person ought to have. So when you are putting on your veil to tie up your hair, you should say: 'Lord God, I give You thanks because You supported me when I sinned. Because of my incontinent life, I am unworthy to behold You, and so I cover my hair with a veil.'"

    The Lord added: "Incontinence is so abhorrent to Me that even a virgin who has the intention of indulging in lustful pleasure is not a pure virgin in My sight, unless she rectifies her intention through penance.

    "When you cover your forehead with the veil, you should say: 'Lord God, You have made all creatures well and created man in Your image excelling all others, have mercy on me! Because I have not used the beauty of my face unto Your glory, I cover my forehead with a veil.'

    "When you put on your shoes, say: 'Blessed are You, my God, Who commands me to wear shoes so that I may be strong and not lukewarm in Your service. Strengthen me, then, so that I may be able to walk in the way of Your commandments.'

    "You should show humility in all the other clothes you wear and be virtuous and self-controlled in the use of your whole body.

    "When you come to table, say: 'Lord God, if You would, for You are able to do so, I should ask You to allow us to subsist without food. Now, however, because You have commanded us to take food in a reasonable way, I ask You, grant me temperance at meals so that, by Your grace, I may be able to eat as my nature needs and not as my bodily appetite craves.'

    "When you go to bed, say: 'Blessed are You, my God, Who arranges the changes of time for our relaxation and for the comfort of soul and body! I ask You to give my body rest this night and to keep me safe from the power and deception of the enemy'."
