Hildegard an Official Saint

A word from the newest official saint:

I reach out my hand to God that he may carry me along as a feather is borne weightlessly by the wind.

Liam sent word to me this morning: the Pope formalizes the status of Hildegard of Bingen. From CNS:

In a 2010 series of audience talks about women’s contributions to the church, Pope Benedict dedicated two talks to St. Hildegard. He said she is a worthy role model for Catholics today because of “her love for Christ and his church, which was suffering in her time, too, and was wounded also then by the sins of priests and laypeople.”

It’s a good day to be Catholic.
