Default The twelve year Prayer of St. Bridget on the Passion of Jesus?

Read a laminated foldout on this today. Never heard of this before. What is the general census on this? If this is ligit, how is it properly prayed?

Thanks for any help!

Default Re: The twelve year Prayer of St. Bridget on the Passion of Jesus?

There was a thread about this already:

http://forums.catholic.com/showthrea...hlight=bridget

I have a friend who is doing this prayer and is completely convinced that it is from God. He was very sceptical at first, but after reading up more about it, he started practicing it himself. It felt weird that a Greek Catholic from Romania had to be the one teaching me, who is a Swede, about this famous prayer...

St. Bridget is one of the patrons of Europe and I am really hoping her spirituality will flourish once again, with or without this 12 year prayer!

Your brother in Christ,
Nils

My twin brother is also following this 12 year devotion. Apparently it was approved as authentic by Pope Clement XII. It was also supported by Maria Simma, who was a well known Catholic seer that reported being visited by souls in purgatory asking for prayers. Here are the promises associated with the 7-prayer 12 year novena:

1. The soul who prays them suffers no Purgatory.

2. The soul who prays them will be accepted among the Martyrs, as though he had spilled his blood for his faith.

3. The soul who prays them can chose three others whom Jesus will then keep in a state of grace sufficient to become holy.

4. No one in the four successive generations of the soul who prays them will be lost.

5. The soul who prays them will be made conscious of his death one month in advance.

He is 18 now, he is hoping that by the time he is 30, he will be able to use the #3 promise and choose his children to be kept in a state of grace sufficient to become holy.
He has been following the novena for almost a year now, it will be interesting to see what happens. Personally, the only trouble I have with this novena is promise #2. But thats just me.

He is also debating on whether to choose a world leader or not when the time comes.

I have a prayer booklet on purgatory which has this prayer. I tried praying this before for a while, but then I wasn't able to continue it. Hope I could get back.
