February 10, 2017 – Memorial of Saint Scholastica
St. Scholastica was the sister of St. Benedict. She consecrated her life to God from her earliest youth.
On her feast day, a prayer in her honor:
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 Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
