Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) – Mystic, Poet, Musician, Healer and Teacher: A Woman for Others

We are all called today to have courage to be radically truthful, to be fearless in our directness in speech and purpose, and to accept a personal commitment for the poor.

Hildegard of Bingen died September 17th, 1179 in her monastery.
