Quick piece of news that our readers may be interested in (thanks, social networking feeds!): according to “Rome Reports,” in October 2012, Benedict XVI will canonize Hildegard of Bingen (already commemorated in the Anglican / Episcopal and Lutheran liturgical calendars) and name her a Doctor of the Church, an honor long overdue.

Hildegard will be fourth woman to be named a Doctor of the Church in the Roman Catholic Church, joining Teresa of Ávila, Catherine of Siena, and Thérèse of Lisieux.

For a bit more on Hildegard, check out my post from September 17th, her dies natalis.
