During her earthly life of 70 years, St. Brigita (a mother of eight) received mystic revelations from Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Through the use of light, the divinity of Christ was emphasized both in the Nativity and the Crucifixion. These revelations transformed Western Art in a very dark and painful 14th Century Europe. She was a woman of great strength and vision who believed in the dignity of every human life. Might she be the one to pray to, to help bring Northern Europe back to its senses and back on its knees. May the TRUE Northern Lights, the TRUE gift of Scandanavia that singer Sissel sings about so well, return in glory...
On hearing it, I wondered what this could mean or why he gave me such a greeting, since I knew and believed that I was unworthy of any such thing, or of any good thing, but also that it was possible for God to do anything he wanted. The angel said next: 'The offspring to be born in you is holy and will be called the Son of God. It will be done as it pleases God.' I neither thought myself worthy nor did I ask the angel 'Why?' or 'When will it be done?' but I asked: 'How is it to be that I, who do not even know a man, am to become the unworthy Mother of God?' The angel answered me, as I said, that nothing is impossible for God, but 'Whatever he wants to do will be done.' When I heard the words of the angel, I felt the most fervent desire to become the Mother of God, and my soul spoke out of love: 'Here I am, may your will be done in me!' At that word, right then and there, my Son was conceived in my womb to the indescribable thrill of my soul and all my limbs. When I had him in the womb, I bore him without any pain, without any heaviness or weariness in my body. I humbled myself in every way, knowing that the one I bore was the Almighty. When I gave birth to him, I did so without any pain or sin, just as I had conceived him, with such a thrill of soul and body that I felt like I was walking on air out of the thrill of it all.

Magnetic "ropes" tying the Earth to the Sun have been discovered by Nasa scientists exploring the mysterious energy that powers the spectacular displays of Northern Lights which illuminate the night sky over the Arctic region.
The giant ropes are made from twisted magnetic fields that act as invisible superhighways for solar particles to travel from the Sun to the outer atmosphere where they trigger immense displays of light for up to several hours at a time.
The discovery was made with the help of a fleet of Nasa satellites launched earlier this year which have been monitoring the Northern Lights, or the aurora borealis, from space at the same time as scientists on the ground take measurements from underneath the atmosphere.
David Sibeck, a Nasa project scientist from the Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland, said that the Themis satellites may have answered the question of where all the energy comes from that powers the amazing spectacle of the Northern Lights.
"The satellites have found evidence of magnetic ropes connecting the Earth's upper atmosphere directly to the Sun. We believe that solar wind particles flow in along these ropes, providing energy for geomagnetic storms and auroras," Dr Sibeck said.
The magnetic rope is formed from a twisted bundle of magnetic fields organised much like the twisted hemp of a mariner's rope. Although spacecraft have detected these invisible ropes before, it was the five micro satellites of Themis that allowed scientists to visualise their three-dimensional structure.
