                       The Pope was exiled in Avignon. Bridget asked the Supreme Pontiff to return to Rome.   
                         When Urban V returned to Rome in 1367, Bridget thought that she had succeeded.   
                          However, the Pope was forced to return to Avignon three years later.
     
 
I give Bridget credit for getting in touch with the Pope to return to Rome.

                     In 1353 Bridget moved into the home of a wealthy Roman woman. She made this home into 
                      a guest house for pilgrims. She aided the poor, visiting them and caring for them herself in the hospitals.

Bridget made the home of the wealthy Roman woman a guest house especially for Scandinavian pilgrims.
