Patron Saint Scholastica
St. Scholastica was the twin sister of St. Benedict.
She lived in Italy from 480 to 547. She was a nun and
each year she would meet with her brother, St. Benedict
to discuss spiritual matters. St. Gregory wrote that
she and her brother were very close and were buried
St. Scholastica is the patron saint of many causes:
* Children with convulsions
* Nuns and sisters
* Against storms and rain
* Le Mans
Many Catholics who have St. Scholastica as a patron
wear a St. Scholastica medal or a St. Scholastica charm,
asking for her intercession and help in their lives.
Many people also give a St. Scholastica pendant as a
gift to a woman who is entering the convent offering
them the inspiration of St. Scholastica.
St. Scholastica Prayer
O God, to show us where innocence leads, you made the
soul of your virgin Saint Scholastica soar to heaven
like a dove in flight. Grant through her merits and
her prayers that we may so live in innocence as to attain
to joys everlasting. This we ask through our Lord.
Prayer of St. Scholastica
God of love,
to show us the beauty of holiness,
you caused the soul of St. Scholastica
to go up into heaven in the form of a dove.
Grant that by her example,
we may live in such peace and purity of heart as
to enjoy everlasting happiness with her.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your
Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of
the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
Praise for St. Scholastica
Father, all powerful and ever living God,
we do well always and everywhere to give you
thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord.
So powerful in confident prayer,
more surpassing in fervent love,
St. Scholastica ran the way of your commandments
in the school of holy Benedict.
On earth, in a community of learners,
they sought you above all things.
Now, in our heavenly homeland,
they share the joys of everlasting life and glory.
And so we sing your praise
with the whole company of angels and saints,
as we joyfully proclaim: Holy, holy, holy....
