Pope to canonize and name Hildegard of Bingen as Doctor of the Church

I'm so excited to see this multi-talented music composer and philosopher to be named a Saint and Doctor of the Church!!!

This is very exciting. I first discovered St. Hildegard when I bought a couple of CDs of her works. Her music is joyful. At one time I had a book of her drawings but I can't find it now. Our Holy Father is awesome in that he unerringly selects those who set good examples of fidelity and obedience to be Doctors of the Church. Now I must find that book and resurrect those CDs!

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
