Acts of the Holy SeeCongregation of the Holy OfficeWarning

in some places, a certain little work called the “secret of happiness: 15 prayers revealed by the lord to saint bridget in the church of saint paul in rome” has been disseminated, published in nice and several other places in several languages.

since it is stated in this pamphlet that god made st. In order to fulfill certain promises, whose supernatural origin is in no way maintained, the ordinary people of the place take care not to grant permission to publish or reprint pamphlets or other writings that contain these aforementioned promises.

Some recent publications of the pledges have made various claims about previous popes approving their publication, however, such claims are quite false. there are no authentic records of such approvals of the pledges themselves.

In assembling the sentences below, it soon became apparent that it would be impossible to match a Latin version with a popular English translation of the sentences. I have no less than five Latin texts and three English texts, all dating from the fifteenth to the twentieth century and none of them agreeing very well with each other. while the underlying meaning of the sentences is very similar, the order of the sentences is different between the various editions. in addition, there are a good number of divergences between these editions in the actual wording of the texts. quite a few phrases appear in one or more editions that do not appear in the other editions. it is quite clear that they have been greatly edited and amended by publishers over time to the point where it is difficult, if not impossible, for me to determine exactly what the wording of the authentic “prayers of Saint Bridget” is. So what I have done is taken from the Latin as found in the 1670 edition of Jacob Merlo Horst’s Paradisus Animae Christianae. The Paradisus Animae Christianae was a popular prayer book of its day and was printed in many languages, including Latin. for English, I started with a popular translation and heavily modified it in places to match the Latin of the paradisus animae christianae.

if your donation is 50 euros or more, you will also receive a beautiful lourdes rosary or a copy of the booklet: ‘the fifteen magnificent prayers of saint brigid of sweden’ or “the mercy prayers booklet pocket” (including the 15 prayers revealed to Saint Bridget of Sweden and over 50 other prayers). The rosary contains a drop of holy water from the Lourdes spring.
