       Magnificent Promises to Saint Bridget of Sweden
       The Promises Saint Bridget prayed for a long time to know how many blows Our Lord suffered during His terrible
       Passion. Rewarding her patience, one day He appeared to her and said: "I received 5475 blows upon My Body.
       If you wish to honor them in some way, recite fifteen Our Fathers and fifteen Hail Marys with the following Prayers,
       which I Myself shall teach you, for an entire year. When the year is finished, you will have honored each of
       My Wounds."

       Our Lord grants these promises to all who devoutly recite the 15 Saint Bridget

       1. I will deliver 15 souls of his lineage from Purgatory.
       2. 15 souls of his lineage will be confirmed and preserved in grace.
       3. 15 sinners of his lineage will be converted.
       4. Whoever recites these Prayers will attain the first degree of perfection.
       5. 15 days before his death I will give him My Precious Body in order that he may escape eternal starvation;
           I will give him My Precious Blood to drink lest he thirst eternally.

       6. 15 days before his death he will feel a deep contrition for all his sins and will have a perfect knowledge of them.
       7. I will place before him the sign of My Victorious Cross for his help and defense against the attacks of his enemies.
       8. Before his death I shall come with My Dearest Beloved Mother.
       9. I shall graciously receive his soul, and will lead it into eternal joys.     
     10. And having led it there I shall give him a special draught from the fountain of My Deity, something I will not for
          those who have not recited My Prayers.

     11. Let it be known that whoever may have been living in a state of mortal sin for 30 years, but who will recite devoutly,
          or have the intention to recite these Prayers, the Lord will forgive him all his sins.

     12. I shall protect him from strong temptations.
     13. I shall preserve and guard his 5 senses.
     14. I shall preserve him from a sudden death.
     15. His soul will be delivered from eternal death.
     16. He will obtain all he asks for from God and the Blessed Virgin.
     17. If he has lived all his life doing his own will and he is to die the next day, his life will be prolonged.
     18. Every time one recites these Prayers he gains 100 days indulgence.
     19. He is assured of being joined to the supreme Choir of Angels.
     20. Whoever teaches these Prayers to another, will have continuous joy and merit which will endure eternally.
     21. There where these Prayers are being said or will be said in the future God is present with His grace.

Prayers every day for a year:

Come Holy Ghost

The 15 Prayers of Saint Bridget

First Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary

       O Jesus Christ! Eternal Sweetness to those who love Thee, joy surpassing all joy and all
         desire, Salvation and Hope of all sinners, Who hast proved that Thou hast no greater
         desire than to be among men, even assuming human nature at the fullness of time for the
         love of men, recall all the sufferings Thou hast endured from the instant of Thy conception,
         and especially during Thy Passion, as it was decreed and ordained from all eternity in the
         Divine plan. Remember, O Lord, that during the Last Supper with Thy disciples, having washed
         their feet, Thou gavest them Thy Most Precious Body and Blood, and while at the same time
         Thou didst sweetly console them, Thou didst foretell them Thy coming Passion. Remember the
         sadness and bitterness which Thou didst experience in Thy Soul as Thou Thyself bore witness
         saying: "My Soul is sorrowful even unto death."
         Remember all the fear, anguish and pain that Thou didst suffer in Thy delicate Body
         before the torment of the crucifixion, when, after having prayed three times, bathed in a
         sweat of blood, Thou wast betrayed by Judas, Thy disciple, arrested by the people of a
         nation Thou hadst chosen and elevated, accused by false witnesses, unjustly judged by
         three judges during the flower of Thy youth and during the solemn Paschal season.
         Remember that Thou wast despoiled of Thy garments and clothed in those of derision; that
         Thy Face and Eyes were veiled, that Thou wast buffeted, crowned with thorns, a reed
         placed in Thy Hands, that Thou was crushed with blows and overwhelmed with affronts
         and outrages.
         In memory of all these pains and sufferings which Thou didst endure before Thy
         Passion on the Cross, grant me before my death true contrition, a sincere and entire
worthy satisfaction and the remission of all my sins. Amen.

Second Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary
         O Jesus! True liberty of angels, Paradise of delights, remember the horror and sadness
          which Thou didst endure when Thy enemies, like furious lions, surrounded Thee, and by
          thousands of insults, spits, blows, lacerations and other unheard-of-cruelties, tormented
          Thee at will
In consideration of these torments and insulting words, I beseech Thee,
          O my Savior, to
deliver me from all my enemies, both visible and invisible, and to bring me,
          under Thy
protection, to the perfection of eternal salvation. Amen. 

Third Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary

      O Jesus! Creator of Heaven and earth whom nothing can encompass or limit, Thou Who
          dost enfold and hold all under Thy Loving power, remember the very bitter pain Thou
          didst suffer when the Jews nailed Thy Sacred Hands and Feet to the Cross by blow after
          blow with big blunt nails, and not finding Thee in a pitiable enough state to satisfy their
          rage, they enlarged Thy Wounds, and added pain to pain, and with indescribable cruelty
          stretched Thy Body on the Cross, pulled Thee from all sides, thus dislocating Thy Limbs.
           I beg of Thee, O Jesus, by the memory of this most holy and most Loving suffering of the

          Cross, to grant me the grace to fear Thee and to Love Thee. Amen.

Fourth Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary
      O Jesus! Heavenly Physician, raised aloft on the Cross in order that through Thy
          wounds, ours might be healed, remember the bruises which Thou didst suffer and the
          weakness of all Thy Members which were distended to such a degree that never was
          there pain like unto Thine. From the crown of Thy Head to the Soles of Thy Feet there
          was not one spot on Thy Body that was not in torment, and yet, forgetting all Thy
          sufferings, Thou didst not cease to pray to Thy Heavenly Father for Thy enemies, saying:
          "Father forgive them for they know not what they do."
          Through this great Mercy, and in memory of this suffering, grant that the remembrance of

          Thy Most Bitter Passion may effect in us a perfect contrition and the remission of all our
          sins. Amen.

Fifth Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary

      O Jesus! Mirror of eternal splendor, remember the sadness which Thou experienced,
          when contemplating in the light of Thy Divinity the predestination of those who would
          be saved by the merits of Thy Sacred Passion, Thou didst see at the same time, the great
          multitude of reprobates who would be damned for their sins, and Thou didst complain
          bitterly of those hopeless, lost and unfortunate sinners.

          Through the abyss of compassion and pity, and especially through the goodness which
          Thou displayed to the good thief when Thou saidst to him: "This day, thou shalt be with
          Me in Paradise." I beg of Thee, O Sweet Jesus, that at the hour of my death, Thou wilt
          show me mercy. Amen.

Sixth Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary
       O Jesus! Beloved and most desirable King, remember the grief Thou didst suffer, when
           naked and like a common criminal, Thou was fastened and raised on the Cross, when all
           Thy relatives and friends abandoned Thee, except Thy Beloved Mother, who remained
           close to Thee during Thy agony and whom Thou didst entrust to Thy faithful disciple when 
           Thou saidst to Mary: "Woman, behold thy son!" and to Saint John: "Son, behold thy

           I beg of Thee O my Savior, by the sword of sorrow which pierced the soul of Thy holy
           Mother, to have compassion on me in all my afflictions and tribulations, both corporal
           and spiritual, and to assist me in all my trials, and especially at the hour of my death.

Seventh Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary

           O Jesus! Inexhaustible Fountain of compassion, Who by a profound gesture of Love,
           said from the Cross: "I thirst!" and who suffered from the thirst for the salvation of the
           human race. I beg of Thee O my Savior, to inflame in our hearts the desire to tend
           toward perfection in all our acts; and to extinguish in us the concupiscence of the flesh
           and the ardor of worldly desires. Amen.


Eighth Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary

          O Jesus! Sweetness of hearts, delight of the spirit, by the bitterness of the vinegar and
           gall which Thou didst taste on the Cross for Love of us, grant us the grace to receive
           worthily Thy Precious Body and Blood during our life and at the hour of our death, that
           they may serve as a remedy of consolation for our souls. Amen.

Ninth Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary

             O Jesus! Royal virtue, joy of the mind, recall the pain Thou didst endure when plunged
             in an ocean of bitterness at the approach of death, insulted, and outraged by the Jews,
             Thou didst cry out in a loud voice that Thou was abandoned by Thy Father, saying:
             "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?"

            Through this anguish, I beg of Thee, O my Savior, not to abandon me in the terrors and
            pains of my death. Amen.

Tenth Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary

         O Jesus! Who art the beginning and end of all things, life and virtue, remember that
             for our sakes Thou was plunged in an abyss of suffering from the soles of Thy Feet to
             the crown of Thy Head. In consideration of the enormity of Thy Wounds, teach me to
             keep, through pure love, Thy Commandments, whose way is wide and easy for those
             who love Thee. Amen.


Eleventh Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary

             O Jesus! Deep abyss of mercy, I beg of Thee, in memory of Thy Wounds which
             penetrated to the very marrow of Thy Bones and to the depth of Thy being, to draw me,
             a miserable sinner, overwhelmed by my offenses, away from sin and to hide me from
             Thy Face justly irritated against me, hide me in Thy Wounds, until Thy anger and just
             indignation shall have passed away. Amen.


Twelfth Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary

               O Jesus! Mirror of Truth, symbol of unity, link of Charity, remember the multitude of
               wounds with which Thou was covered from head to foot, torn and reddened by the
               spilling of Thy adorable Blood. O Great and Universal Pain which Thou didst suffer in
               Thy virginal Flesh for Love of us! Sweetest Jesus! What is there that Thou couldst
               have done for us which Thou hast not done! May the fruit of Thy sufferings be renewed
               in my soul by the faithful remembrance of Thy Passion, and may Thy Love increase in
               my heart each day, until I see Thee in eternity, Thou Who art the treasury of every real
               good and every joy, which I beg Thee to grant me, O Sweetest Jesus, in Heaven. Amen.

Thirteenth Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary

              O Jesus! Strong Lion, Immortal and Invincible King, remember the pain Thou didst
              endure when all Thy strength, both moral and physical, was entirely exhausted, Thou
              didst bow Thy Head, saying: "It is consummated!"

              Through this anguish and grief, I beg of Thee Lord Jesus, to have mercy on me at the
              hour of my death when my mind will be greatly troubled and my soul will be in
              anguish. Amen.

Fourteenth Prayer

Our Father - Hail Mary

              O Jesus! Only Son of the Father, Splendor and figure of His Substance, remember the
              simple and humble recommendation Thou didst make of Thy Soul to Thy Eternal
              Father, saying: "Father, into Thy Hands I commend My Spirit!" And with Thy Body all
              torn, and Thy Heart Broken, and the bowels of Thy Mercy open to redeem us, Thou
              didst Expire. By this Precious Death, I beg of Thee O King of Saints, comfort me and
              help me to resist the devil, the flesh and the world, so that being dead to the world I
              may live for Thee alone. I beg of Thee at the hour of my death to receive me, a pilgrim
              and an exile returning to Thee. Amen.


Fifteenth Prayer
Our Father - Hail Mary

              O Jesus! True and fruitful Vine! Remember the abundant outpouring of Blood which
              Thou didst so generously shed from Thy Sacred Body pressed down and running over
              as a grape in a wine press.

              From Thy Side, pierced with a lance by a soldier, blood and water issued forth until
              there was not left in Thy Body a single drop, and finally, like a bundle of myrrh lifted
              to the top of the Cross Thy delicate Flesh was destroyed, the very Substance of Thy
              Body withered, and the Marrow of Thy Bones dried up.

              Through this bitter Passion and through the outpouring of Thy Precious Blood, I beg
              of Thee, O Sweet Jesus, to receive my soul when I am in my death agony. Amen.


        O Sweet Jesus! Pierce my heart so that my tears of penitence and love will be my
              bread day and night; may I be converted entirely to Thee, may my heart be Thy
              perpetual resting place, may my conversation be pleasing to Thee, and may the end of
              my life be so praiseworthy that I may merit Heaven and there with Thy saints, praise
              Thee forever. Amen.
