Saint of the Day

St. Scholastica (480-543)
Scholastica, the twin sister of St. Benedict, was consecrated to God at an early age. Every year, she visited her brother at his monastery. When she died, her soul left her body in the form of a dove, and flew up to heaven.

If we wish to attain a dwelling place in his kingdom, we shall not reach it unless we hasten there by our good deeds.
– St. Benedict
