07/23/2022 – St. Brigid of Sweden

Today is the Feast of St Brigid of Sweden. Many will know of the 15 Prayers of the Lord’s Passion and Death that were composed by St Brigid from visions she was granted.

But few know of the Brigittine Rosary. This devotion of St Brigid is an addition to the rosary. Instead of a 5 decade rosary it is a 6 decade rosary. To the Joyful Mysteries St Brigid added “The Immaculate Conception.”

To the Sorrowful Mysteries, she added “The Body of Jesus is Laid in the Arms of His Sorrowful Mother.” And to the Glorious Mysteries, “The Patron of Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace.”This special way of praying the rosary was part of the prayer of the Discalced Carmelite Order.
