Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

St. Scholastica, Virgin (Memorial)


10 February 
St. Scholastica, Virgin (Memorial)


St. Scholastica, a Nun, was born at Norcia in Umbria, Italy, in the 5th century. She was the twin sister of St. Benedict of Norcia.
She consecrated herself to God in early childhood and lived near her brother's monastery at Monte Cassino.
Before her death, she went to visit her brother as she usually do once a year. When night began drawing close, St. Benedict decided to return to his Abbey from their nearby meeting place, but his sister implored him to stay there with her through the night. When he insisted on going, St. Scholastica cried to God in prayer and a very heavy rain began, with flashing thunder, thereby preventing St. Benedict from going but to stay and continue their spiritual talk with her.
Three days later, while in his cell room St. Benedict saw the soul of his sister leaving her body and descending to Heaven in form of a dove.
She is the patron of Nuns and invoked against storm and rain


St. Scholastica, Pray for us!
