Prophecies of St. Bridget of Sweeden
St Bridget of Sweeden
This little dynamo of a saint was witness to many visions and revelations. She was very instrumental in Church reforms in the courts, abbeys and episcopal palaces and even with the Holy See. She also founded the Religious Order of the Most Holy Savior. The Secrets of Heaven were manifested to her in her many revelations. She made many pilgrimages to the sanctuaries of Italy and Palestine with her daughter St Catherine.
a) "The time of Antichrist will be near when the measure of injustice will overflow and when wickedness has grown to immense proportions, when Christians love heresies and the unjust trample underfoot the servants ofGod."
b) "At the end of this age, the Antichrist will be born. As Christ was born from the highest type of womanhood (Virgin), so Antichrist will be born from the lowest (prostitute). He will be a child-wonder at birth. His mother will be an accursed woman, who will pretend to be well informed about spiritual things, and his father an accursed man, from the seed of whom the Devil shall form his work. The time of this Antichrist, well known to Me, will come when iniquity and impiety shall above measure abound, when injustice shall have filled the measure to overflowing, and wickedness shall have grown to immeasurable proportions.
It is not in the time described by the brother whose books, thou has seen. Before, however, Antichrist arrives, the gate of Faith will be opened to some nations, and Scripture shall be verified. People without intelligence will glorify Me, and deserts shall be inhabited. Hence, when many Christians will be lovers of heresies, and wicked men will persecute the clergy and trample spirituality and justice under foot, this should be the sign that Antichrist shall come without delay."
c) "Lastly, he shall arrive, the most wicked of men, and, helped by the Jews, he will fight against the whole world; he will reign during three years, and shall have dominion over the whole earth; he will make every effort to abolish from the earth the Christian name, and very many Christians shall be killed."
d) "In the year 1980 the wicked shall prevail; they will profane and sacreligiously defile the churches, by erecting in them altars to idols and to Antichrist, whom they will worship, and will attempt to force others to do the same."
e) "Rome will be visited by sword and fire and plowed under."
(St. Frances of Rome also foretells this catashtrophe, as well as many other prophets, however, St. Benedict of Nursia says that Rome will not be destroyed by outside powers, but die from within, by natural causes such as storms, whirlwinds, and earthquakes.)
