The Feast of Saint Hildegard of Bingen

I first came to know of Saint Hildegard of Bingen as a teenager, when I happened to buy a cassette tape of her amazing choral music.

O God, by whose grace your servant Hildegard, kindled with the Fire of your love, became a burning and shining light in your Church: Grant that we also may be aflame with the spirit of love and discipline, and walk before you as children of light; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Saint Hildegard of Bingen, pray for us, for all Benedictines and for all composers.
