SWEDEN - SVERIGE

Pope Saint John Paul II was a pilgrim to Sweden in 1989; Pope Francis followed in his footsteps in 2016 on the occasion of the Lutheran-Catholic common commemoration of the Reformation.

Papa Benedict XVI gave a catechesis on Saint Bridget of Sweden, who is one of the co-Patronesses of Europe.

"To me, Our Lady, she is my mother."

Eric gives his something about Mary in English & Swedish.

Jonas      

"I asked God, ‘What is love?’ Every day I went to pray the rosary beneath the statue of Our Mother, and slowly, slowly for each time I did it, -two, three times a day for 14 days - a feeling of love grew inside my breast, my chest. While I was walking around in the area of meditation, I said 'This is unbelievable.' In silence and solitude, I heard the voice of Our Mother talking to me. And it went on and it was so silent and so fragile that if I even sort of thought or was distracted by the smallest thing, I could lose it. But the voice of a mother and the feeling of love returned constantly all the time while I was asking for it."

"Totus tuus ego sum et omnia mea tua sunt.
Accipio te in mea omnia. Praebe mihi cor tuum, Maria."
- St Louis de Montfort

Saint John Paul II took his motto Totus Tuus from this quote.

"I am totally yours and all that I have is yours.
I accept you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart.”


Birgitta and Ulf Ekman give their testimony in September 2015
