On July 23, we celebrate the Feast of Holy Birgitta

Holy BridgetWe think of her life. We see that she lived her life like other people.
By being human, she enriched her family and society with her charity. She taught her children to care for the sick.

In today's society, we need people who can be present. It can be a mother who gives food to her children and who is not as concerned with mobile or television. It is nice to see a 6 year old child helping her blind father and her little siblings. We see in everyday life how many good actions in different ways can enrich our society and ourselves.



Holy Mother Birgitta, help us so that we can help others with what we can and give our time to those who need it.

Holy Mother Birgitta, pray for us!
Holy Olav, pray for us!

Here I am to do your will

In the month of August, I would like to share with you the vocation of Our Lord, and that we voluntarily accept His request.

Then we follow Christ, and all who follow Christ are given life and find purpose and meaning in life. Finally, I can say:
"Here I am to do your will, God." That is, I love the Lord my God with all my heart and all my soul, with all my strength; and likewise I love my neighbor as myself.

I dedicate my life to Christ and our neighbor. This will be my way through life.

When I think of my vocation, I think of when I was young, at the moment when God called me and I answered: "Yes!" to God.

Often we think of vocations as something individual, but it is not. We go the same way together. We are saved together and we become saints together.

A priest and a sister who has dedicated their soul to God, looks with the eyes and heart of Jesus to others because our lives are mirrors of Christ's life.

We humans also make mistakes in our lives.
As Mother Elisabeth said, "Trial is the way to salvation".

 

Welcome to the Bridgettine Convent!

The sisters participated in this year's Olsok celebration in memory of the Norwegian patron saint, Saint Olav.

The photos are taken of the procession before mass at Stiklestad, mass in the old church at Åre (Sweden) and procession after pontifical mass in the Nidaros Cathedral, Trondheim.

The Bridgettine Convent is open for all that want to stay in our guesthouse.

All the good we do, it comes back to us

Flower

Only the good deeds are the ones that enrich our lives in all situations.
Therefore, we pray for the grace of God.


We believe that God can help us. I want to forget myself, so that God can work inside me.


Let me be shaped into the good that is in you.
When I face my weaknesses, I can learn from them and remember the good things I can do.


This is how you can be in me and I in you.
Lord help us to do well in difficult times.

I want to say like Saint Bridget:
"Show me your ways and make me willing to walk them."


You know that I love these ways, and God will guide me.

Når jeg ikke ser den.

Når jeg går sakte, sakte ...

Når vi er i en vanskelig tid.

Når jeg går forbi noe som hindrer.

Når jeg lærer av andre.

Når alt går bra.

Når jeg velger den rette veien.

Når Gud hjelper oss å finne, 
den rette veien i våre liv.


Herre, kan du være med oss ...

Herre, vi vil være som blomster som åpner seg og sprer vellukt.
Slik vil vi selv åpne våre hjerter til Ditt lys. Lyset gir nåde.

 

I forbindelse med festen for Hellige Birgitta 23. juli.

Vi ber med Birgittas ord:

 

Vis meg veien.

Kom snart og lys opp i min natt!

Som en døende lengter,

Slik lengter jeg etter deg.

Si til min sjel,

at intet du tillater, er uten håp.

Å, Jesus, Guds sønn.

Taus sto du foran dine dommere.

Gi meg å tie inntil jeg har besinnet meg,

på hva jeg skal si og hvordan jeg skal tale.

Vis meg veien, og gjør meg villig til å gå videre.

Så oppfyll da min lengsel og vis meg veien.

Jeg kommer til Deg som den sårete kommer til legen.

Herre, gi mitt hjerte ro.

 

We live in God's grace

Mother Elisabeth has taught us to live in God's grace.
She said, "Never let the sacred flame go down in your heart."
By practicing the sacred virtues you will make it burn more and more clearly, and you will make it work with the grace of God in you.

The virtues are of great help in making us well as human beings, so that we can give the best of ourselves.

When I think of the divine virtues, I think of faith, hope, and love.

I think we nurture the virtues at the moments when we need it most in our lives.
I could describe some examples, but I let you find the flame that glows in your life, yourself.

We wish you a blessed Christmas

Child Jesus

It is Christmas and we celebrate the birth of Jesus in our hearts.

With great joy we celebrate this great mystery that enriches our lives. Jesus became human just like us. This mystery makes our lives easier.

Mary, Joseph and Jesus stayed together in the stable. We must learn to be together and enjoy each other. Just as we are, we can make others happy with good wishes and Christmas gifts.

How nice are these moments we can enjoy at Christmas!
Yes, they last a long time and make us joyful and happy.

With gratitude and love, we wish you a blessed Christmas 2021.
