Today we celebrate the Feast of St. Hildegard of Bingen. She was the Abbess of the Benedictine Abbey in Bingen, Germany. A woman of great wisdom and understanding, St. Hildegard had a deep love for Christ and glorified him with her words and music. She lived from 1098 - 1179. Let us remember her today. May we, like her, grow in our love of Christ and seek him with our whole lives.
Enjoy these words of hers:
“Be not lax in celebrating. Be not lazy in the festive service of God. Be ablaze with enthusiasm. Let us be an alive, burning offering before the altar of God.”
“There is the Music of Heaven in all things and we have forgotten how to hear it until we sing”.
