Revelations and Prophecies Imparted to St. Bridget

Book Four

Chapter Ninety-Eight

          In Chapter Ninety-Eight of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, our Lord and Savior speaks again to the bride of what will happen to four types who fall into the category of lukewarm sinners. He will fire four arrows into them. He proceeds to inform her that the first to be shot is the one-eyed man who only sees the world's pleasures; the second is he who is lame and repents of his sins, but quickly relapses for he is not sincere in reforming; the third is he who is deaf in one ear for he wants to hear what God says, but also has an ear to the world's fleeting things; and the fourth is he who is sprawled on the ground. Even though he may want to heed all God wills, he still is entangled with worldly things. Yet God, as the divine Physician, can heal each of these fallen ones if they repent and let themselves be humbly led back to the reformation of their lives.

    The Son speaks: "I shall give My friends four arrows. By the first shall be shot the man who is blind in one eye; by the second the man who is lame in one foot; by the third the man who is deaf in one ear; by the fourth the man who lies stretched out on the ground.

    "The man blind in one eye symbolizes the people who see the commandments of God and the deeds of the saints but pay them no attention. They do see, however, the pleasures of the world and covet them. Such people should be shot by saying thus: 'You are like Lucifer who beheld the utmost beauty of God but who, because he unjustly desired what he should not have desired, descended into hell. You, too, shall descend there, unless you come to your senses, inasmuch as you understand the precepts of God as well as the transient nature of everything in the world. The best advice for you, then, is to hold on to what is certain and let go of what is transient, so that you do not descend into hell.'

    "The man lame in one foot symbolizes those who repent and are sorry for the sins they have committed, but who strive to acquire earthly comforts and worldly rewards. Such people should be shot in this way: 'You strive for the comfort of a body that worms will shortly be consuming. Strive instead for the profit of your soul that will live forever.'

    "The man deaf in one ear symbolizes those who desire to hear My words and those of My saints but also keep their other ear open for coarse and worldly speech. Tell them thus: 'You are like Judas who listened to God's words with one ear but they went out the other. What he heard did not do him any good. Close your ears to empty words so that you may come to hear the angels' song.'

    "The man stretched out on the ground symbolizes those who are entangled in earthly matters yet think on and wish to know the way by which they can reform themselves. Tell them thus: 'The time is short. It is but a moment. Yet the punishment of hell is eternal and the glory of the saints everlasting. In order, then, to attain true life, do not worry about taking up a heavy and difficult load, for God is as just as He is kind.'

    "If the arrow comes out bloodied from the heart of anyone shot in this way, that is, if he feels compunction and resolves to reform his life, then I will pour into him the oil of My grace by which his whole body will regain its strength."
