St SCHOLASTICA

Christian Saint

Patron Saint of Children suffering from Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, or other Convulsive Ailments

First Benedictine nun and sister of St BENEDICT.

She was in charge of a nunnery not far from her brother and they used to meet midway as she could not set foot amongst the monks and vice versa.

They must have met in a hut or some kind of shelter. She enjoyed these meetings very much but he was always in a hurry to get back.

He was surprised how often his return was delayed by heavy rainfall. She was surprised and delighted that God found time to answer her prayers.
