Contents Commemoratio Sanctae Scholasticae
Commemoration of St. Scholastica

From her feast in the Roman Breviary (February 10).

Ant: Veni, Sponsa Christi, accipe coronam, quam tibi Dominus praeparavit in aeternum. Ant: Come, o Spouse of Christ, accept the crown, which the Lord has prepared thee from all eternity.
V. Diffusa est gratia in labiis tuis.
R. Propterea benedixit te Deus in aeternum.
V. Grace is poured upon thy lips.
R. Therefore God has blessed thee forever.
Deus, qui animam beatae Virginis tuae Scholasticae ad ostendendam innocentiae viam in columbae specie caelum penetrare fecisti: da nobis eius meritis et precibus ita innocenter vivere; ut ad aeterna mereamur gaudia pervenire. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum Filium tuum : Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen. O God, who to show forth the way of the innocent, didst cause the soul of blessed Scholastica, thy Virgin, to soar upward to heaven in the likeness of a dove: grant that helped by her merits and prayers, our lives upon earth may be so guileless, that we too may become worthy to enter into the joys of that which is everlasting. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.
