The book the Prophecies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden has been updated to be in PDF, RTF, and world wide web page formats.

And it has been slightly reformatted for easier reading.

This book is a very powerful book and one should read it in a particularly reverent and prayerful state.

It is full of analogies that are first given and then explained spiritually, and direct statements by God, Our Lady, and the saints and angels.

This book I will read next. I don't think I've read the full revelations of St Bridget before but I believe they are very important.

To some people, my love appears to be a heavy burden of lead, for when they should be fasting or keeping vigil in my service or restrain their flesh from sinful desires, they feel as if they are carrying heavy lead. And if they have to hear words or insults, they think it is heavy and hard, or if they must spend time in purity or prayer, it is as if they were sitting between spikes or thorns and they worry every moment.
 
The one who wants to remain in my love should first begin to lift and turn the burden over, that is, he should attempt to do the good through his good will and constant desire. Then he should gradually lift the burden a little, that is, do the good he can do, thinking thus to himself: ‘This I can do well if God gives me his help and grace.’ Then he may persevere in the undertaken task and with great joy bear that which before seemed heavy to him so that every trouble in fasts and vigils or any other trouble will seem to be as light as feathers to him.

I think this quote is something to keep returning to Martin.. to encourage a person to do as He says. Cheesy
