Pope Benedict XVI called Hildegard, “perennially relevant” and “an authentic teacher of theology and a profound scholar of natural science and music.” He named her a doctor of the church in 2012.
Let us pray with her to our Lord for our priests:
Father, Source of Life and Light,
You have bestowed on Saint Hildegard of Bingen many excellent graces. Help our priests to follow her example of meditating on your ineffable majesty and to follow you so that they, amidst the darkness of this world, recognize the Light of your clarity and to cling to you without fail.
We ask all this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
