Saint of the Day Quote: Saint Hildegarde

O venerable father Bernard, I lay my claim before you, for, highly honored by God, you bring fear to the immoral foolishness of this world and, in your intense zeal and burning love for the Son of God, gather men [cf. Luke 5.10] into Christ’s army to fight under the banner of the cross against pagan savagery. I beseech you in the name of the Living God to give heed to my queries.

Letter from Saint Hildegarde to Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, 1146-47
