St Bridget Day: Brigittines


July 23 is usually St. Bridget of Sweden Day. She was a Swedish mystic and housewife who founded the Order of the Most Holy Savior (O.Ss.S.). The rule was given to her in revelations.


You cannot mention the Brigittines without reminding me of the delicious chocolates made by the Brigittine monks of Oregon:

The recipe for their fudge must have come straight from heaven!


And she was an OFS. :slight_smile:


There is also the irish Sisters of St.Bridgid.They have a US noviate on Loma Linda drive in San Antonio,texas.


That’s St. Brigid of Kildare, Ireland.:slight_smile:
