Blessed Memorial of St. Scholastica!

St. Scholastica was born circa 480 in Nursia, Italy, the twin sister of St. Benedict. The two lived together until Benedict left to study in Rome. Benedict started a monastery and Scholastica a convent. As adults, once a year, she would visit her brother and they would spend a day in prayer and discussion. The last time they met, Scholastica felt her looming death. She wished to spend more time with her brother but he refused. Scholastica prayed and a storm prevented Benedict from returning to his monastery. Three days later, on February 10, 543, Benedict witnessed his sister’s soul ascending to heaven in the form of a shining dove. St. Scholastica is remembered as patron of nuns, epilepsy, and against storms. She is often portrayed with a crozier, crucifix and/or dove. (Source: “The Life of St. Scholastica”)
