Bridget of Sweden was married at 13 and the mother of eight children (the second eldest was St. Catherine of Sweden). After the death of her husband of twenty years, she founded the Bridgettines nuns and monks. Bridget was a mystic, who received visions from early childhood which became more frequent and definite. She believed that Christ Himself appeared to her, and she wrote down the revelations she then received.
