Quote of the Day – 10 February – The Memorial of St Scholastica (c 482-543) Twin sister of St Benedict (c 482-547)

When he entered the house, the blind men came to him
and Jesus said to them,
“Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then he touched their eyes, saying,
“According to your faith be it done to you.”
And their eyes were opened. …

Matthew 9:28-30matthew 9 28-30 do you believe - blind - 10 feb 2020

“When she heard her brother refuse her request, the holy woman joined her hands on the table, laid her head on them and began to pray.   As she raised her head from the table, there were such brilliant flashes of lightning, such great peals of thunder and such a heavy downpour of rain that neither Benedict nor his brethren could stir across the threshold of the place where they had been seated.   Sadly he began to complain:  “May God forgive you, sister.   What have you done?”  “Well,” she answered, “I asked you and you would not listen, so I asked my God and He did listen.   So now go off, if you can, leave me and return to your monastery.” … (St Pope Gregory the Great (540-604) on St Scholastica)

“I asked you and you would not listen,
so I asked my God and He did listen.”
