SANTA BRIGIDA (June 1303 - July 23, 373), Swedish religious and mystic, founder of the Order of the Most Holy Savior, proclaimed holy by Pope Boniface IX on October 7, 1391. Born in an aristocratic family, he had eight children (including the future Santa Catherine) from the happy marriage with the noble Ulf Gudmarsson, both of whom were pervaded by faith and voted to the works of charity, welcomed by the Franciscan tertiaries, with whom he founded a small hospital and provided assistance to the poor. Remained widow in 1344 devoted entirely to the spiritual life, and according to the devotional tradition he had new mystical visions of Jesus (who commissioned him to found a new monastic order) of the Virgin Mary and some Saints; the contents of their revelations about the mystical renewal of the Church and divine designs for humanity are collected in eight volumes that the saint dictated to his spiritual fathers. In 1349 he traveled to Rome for the recognition of his new Order, beginning a series of pilgrimages that led her to the Holy Land, in the places of Christ's preaching, and then to see her return to Rome, where she finally died. In the traditional martyrology is remembered October 8, and his translation on July 7. Compatrona of Europe together with Santa Caterina da Siena and Santa Teresa Benedetta of the Cross, the Roman Martirolio of 2001 sets his liturgical memory on July 23, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth to heaven). Colored Etching, Italy 1886
