“Our Patron Saint: St. Scholastica, twin sister of St. Benedict, consecrated her life to God from her earliest youth. After her brother went to Monte Cassino, where he established his famous monastery, she took up her home in the neighborhood at Plombariola, where she founded and governed a monastery of nuns, about five miles from that of St. Benedict. She visited her brother once a year, and as she was not allowed to enter his monastery, he went in company with some of his brethren to meet her at a house some distance away. These visits were spent conferring together on spiritual matters. On one occasion they had passed the time as usual in prayer and pious conversation and in the evening they sat down to take their reflection. St. Scholastica begged her brother to stay with her until the next day. St. Benedict refused to spend the night away from his monastery. She decided to turn to God in prayer and a furious storm erupted so that neither St. Benedict nor any of his companions could return home. They spent the night in spiritual conversation. The next morning they parted. Three days later St. Scholastica died, and her holy brother beheld her soul in a vision as it ascended into heaven in the form of a dove. He sent his brethren to bring her body to his monastery and laid it in the tomb he had prepared for himself. She died around the year 543, and St. Benedict followed her soon after. Her feast day is February 10th.
