For All the Saints: Hildegard of Bingen

I'm a day late to post something about Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), but I can't overlook a notable woman of the church who, in fact, was recently declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Benedict XVI. She is honored on September 17 in the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican/Episcopal traditions. Here are good descriptions of her and her life and ministry:
