Thought for the Day – 3 July
St Bridget was an exceedingly active and busy person, besides her deep and mystical life of prayer and communion with God. Her maid, nevertheless told others after the Saint’s death, that she was “kind and meek to every creature and that she had a smiling face” regardless of what we would today consider to be the ‘stress’ of her activity. Truly holy people are gentle with others, eminently kind and compassionate toward all and this is the first sign of genuine holiness. How I treat others, is pretty much a mirror of what is going on in my heart. If I aim to see God’s face in all and my heart is on fire with love of Him, then how I treat others will shine forth and reflect this love!
St Bridget of Sweden, pray for us.
