Bridget was born half princess, half slave—and what a fitting description this is for our human condition. From her humble origins, she strove toward virtue and goodness and elevated herself to the level of sainthood. She broke free from the slavery that her mother endured, and she turned away from her father’s self-centered lifestyle and from his apathy toward Christianity. She was born into slavery, but she acted with the dignity befitting a princess—and she was a princess indeed, not just because she was the earthly daughter of a king, but because she knew herself to be a daughter of the King.
