The Feast of St. Scholastica

February 10th

Born to affluent parents, St. Benedict and St. Scholastica both chose a life of contemplation and religious dedication. Her brother left for the monastery, and Scholastica soon followed suit, founding her own monastery with Benedict as the spiritual director. They would meet between the two monasteries, only five miles apart from one another, to indulge in conversations centered around the divine. It is said when Scholastica died, her brother saw her soul ascend to heaven in the form of a dove.

May we, too, find the greatest pleasure in life dwelling on your ways, Lord. St. Scholastica, pray for us!
