The Apostles gave us the divine scriptures: the histories of those events which are our holy-days. Hildegard has nothing to do with these great burning fires of sacred light. This thread isn't turning into anything; this is an Anglican site. I'm sure you won't have any opposition if you talk about von Bingen or Francis of Assisi on Catholic Answers, but don't expect evangelical and reformed people not to prowl around here. We can't stand the mingling of mighty ecumenical holy-days with trivial feasts and commemorations. Go on with Hildegard if you want. I only opposed it because I don't like the idea of this thread turning into a calendar of the saints. I'll just post independent replies here on Sundays and red-letter days.
