July 23 – Saint Bridget of Sweden

Saint Bridget of Sweden

listenBeloved Lord Jesus, Saint Bridget of Sweden first served You as a wife and mother, taking good care of her family, helping her Church, and getting involved in her community.  After becoming a widow, she began to receive revelations about Your passion and suffering.  I ask her to intercede for the widows and widowers in my family, church and neighborhood, that they become more fully aware of Your closeness.  Show them their purpose in life and inspire them to stay actively involved.  Help them to realize how important they are to You and let their value become known to all those around them.  Saint Bridget of Sweden, pray for us.  Amen.
