St. Hildegard, Doctor

Standard

St. Hildegard of Bingen.1.Wikip

St. Hildegard was a multi-talented woman. Named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Benedict XVI on October 7, 2012, she is not well known however we suspect her following will continue to grow as the faithful get to know her. She adds to the body of knowledge and understanding of our Faith.  As we prepare for Sunday Mass, let’s consider her words concerning the power of music and worship as our “prescription of the day.”

“The words symbolize the body, and the jubilant music indicates the spirit; and the celestial harmony shows the
divinity, and the words the humanity of the Son of God.”
