Good book on prayer if you are a serious praying person and want wisdom to help you pray.

One distinctive feature of the houses of the Order was that they were double monasteries , with both men and women forming a joint community, though with separate cloisters. They were to live in poor convents and to give all surplus income to the poor. However, they were allowed to have as many books as they pleased. In , a Jubilee Year , Bridget braved a plague-stricken Europe to make a pilgrimage to Rome accompanied by her daughter, Catherine, and a small party of priests and disciples. This was done partly to obtain from the Pope the authorization of the new Order and partly in pursuance of her self-imposed mission to elevate the moral tone of the age.
This was during the period of the Avignon Papacy within the Roman Catholic Church , however, and she had to wait for the return of the papacy to Rome from the French city of Avignon, a move for which she agitated for many years. It was not until that Pope Urban V , during his brief attempt to re-establish the papacy in Rome, confirmed the Rule of the Order, but meanwhile Birgitta had made herself universally beloved in Rome by her kindness and good works. Save for occasional pilgrimages, including one to Jerusalem in , she remained in Rome until her death on 23 July , urging ecclesiastical reform.
In her pilgrimages to Rome, Jerusalem and Bethlehem, she sent "back precise instructions for the construction of the monastery" now known as Blue Church, insisting that an "abbess, signifying the Virgin Mary, should preside over both nuns and monks. Bridget went to confession every day, and had a constant smiling face. She was originally buried at San Lorenzo in Panisperna before her remains were returned to Sweden.
Because of new discussions about her works, the Council of Basel confirmed the orthodoxy of the revelations in At the age of ten, Bridget had a vision of Jesus hanging upon the cross. When she asked who had treated him like this, he answered: . She was so impressed that from that moment the Passion of Christ became the center of her spiritual life. Her visions of the Nativity of Jesus had a great influence on depictions of the Nativity of Jesus in art. Shortly before her death, she described a vision which included the infant Jesus as lying on the ground, and emitting light himself, and describes the Virgin as blond-haired; many depictions followed this and reduced other light sources in the scene to emphasize this effect, and the Nativity remained very commonly treated with chiaroscuro through to the Baroque.
Other details often seen such as a single candle "attached to the wall," and the presence of God the Father above, also come from Bridget's vision. The Virgin kneels to pray to her child, to be joined by Saint Joseph , and this technically known as the "Adoration of the Child" becomes one of the commonest depictions in the fifteenth century, largely replacing the reclining Virgin in the West. Versions of this depiction occur as early as , well before Bridget's vision, and have a Franciscan origin, by which she may have been influenced, as she was a member of the Franciscan Order.
In addition, "she even predicted an eventual Vatican State, foretelling almost the exact boundaries delineated by Mussolini for Vatican City in Pope Benedict XVI spoke of Bridget in a general audience on 27 October , saying that the value of Saint Bridget's Revelations, sometimes the object of doubt, was specified by Pope John Paul II in the letter Spes Aedificandi : "Yet there is no doubt that the Church," wrote my beloved predecessor, "which recognized Bridget's holiness without ever pronouncing on her individual revelations, has accepted the overall authenticity of her interior experience.
Saint Bridget prayed for a long time to know how many blows Jesus Christ suffered during His terrible Passion. Rewarding her patience, one day He appeared to her and said, "I received blows upon My Body. If you wish to honor them in some way, recite fifteen Our Fathers and fifteen Hail Marys with the following Prayers, which I Myself shall teach you, for an entire year.
When the year is finished, you will have honored each of My Wounds. Whatever their origin, the prayers were quite widely circulated in the late Middle Ages, and became regular features in Books of Hours and other devotional literature. They were translated into various languages; an early English language version of them was printed in a primer by William Caxton. The prayers themselves reflect the late medieval tradition of meditation on the passion of Christ, and are structured around the seven last words of Christ.

They borrow from patristic and Scriptural sources as well as the tradition of devotion to the wounds of Christ. During the Middle Ages, the prayers began to circulate with various promises of indulgence and other assurances of supernatural graces supposed to attend from their regular recitation over the course of a year. These indulgences were repeated in the manuscript tradition of the Books of Hours , and may constitute one major source of the prayers' popularity in the late Middle Ages.
They promise, among other things, the release from Purgatory of fifteen of the devotee's family members, and that they would keep fifteen living family members in a state of grace. The extravagance of the promises made in these rubrics — one widely circulated version promised that the devotee would receive "his heart's desire, if it be for the salvation of his soul"  — attracted critics early and late.
In , William Marshall enjoined his readers to "henseforth In the Brigitta Chapel was erected in Vienna , and in the new district Brigittenau was founded.

In Sweden, adjacent to Skederid Church , built by Bridget's father on the family's land, a memorial stone was erected in Her feast was not in the Tridentine Calendar , but was inserted in the General Roman Calendar in for celebration on 7 October, the day of her canonization by Pope Boniface IX. Five years later, her feast was moved to 8 October although the Church in Sweden celebrates it on the 7th , where it remained until the revision of the General Roman Calendar in , when it was set on the date currently used.
The Third Order of St. Francis includes her feast day on its Calendar of Saints on same day as the general Church, honoring her as a member of the Order. An hour away from this monastery, Vadstena Abbey , also known as Blue Church, contains relics of the saint, with her body being venerated by both Lutheran and Catholic believers.
In Sweden itself, different images of Bridget have prevailed over the centuries: the Swedish nationalist image, the ecumenical, the European, the spiritual and mystical, even accusations associating her visions with mental illness.
Although initially interested in Bridget's Revelations , Martin Luther would come to view her visions mere ravings. Some 19th-century writers presented her as a forerunner of the Protestant Reformation due to her criticism of popes, bishops and other clergy for not living in accordance with the teaching of their religion. Of her as depicted in his play Folkungasagan August Strindberg explained Bridget as "a power-hungry, vainglorius woman who intentionally vied for sainthood", adding "of this unpleasant woman and according to the historical documents I made the uncontrollable ninny now in my drama, although in her honor I let her awaken to clarity about her silliness and her arrogance.
In Throne of a Thousand Years it is described how Bridget damaged King Magnus and Queen Blanche by accusing them of "erotic deviatons, extravagance and murderous plots",  criticism particularly noted by Dala-Demokraten as likely to upset Swedish nuns. Saint Birgitta's Revelaciones , that is, her Revelations written in Latin, appeared in critical editions during the years to under the aegis of the Royal Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities, Stockholm.
