Are the St. Bridget's promises approved by the Church?


#1

I was listening to Catholic Answers this moring and I thought I heard Jimmy Akin say that St Bridgette’s revelations were not approved or somthing to that effect and was wondering what the deal was with her and her revelations?
Thank you,
Your brother in Christ Jesus:blessyou:

The Church approved the revelations of St. Bridget (15 prayers), but condemned the 21 promises attached to these prayers, as many of them are theologically problematic.

Warning Concerning The "Promises of St. Bridget"
Notary of the Supreme Holy Congregation of the Holy Office

In some places, a little work has been disseminated called the “Secret of Happiness: 15 prayers revealed by the Lord to St. Bridget in the Church of St. Paul at Rome”, published at Nice and elsewhere in several languages.

Since it is asserted in this pamphlet that God made to St. Bridget certain promises, whose supernatural origin is uncertain, let local ordinaries take care not to grant permission for publishing or reprinting pamphlets or other writings which contain these promises.
