Saint Pumpkin Spice

Pray for us...

“joy is an essential reference point, a sure guide on the path to a healthier diet”

St. Hildegard thought a combination of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon (pumpkin spice) to be particularly beneficial: 

“This preparation softens the bitterness of the body and mind, opens the heart, sharpens the blunt senses, makes the soul joyful, and diminishes harmful moods.”

Saint Hildegard - born in the Rhine Valley in 1098  entered into religious life at 14, became the abbess at 38, and founded a new monastery 14 years later. Then a year after that she wrote 
"Know the Ways of the Lord", describing 26 of her prophetic visions.

St. Hildegard, with a world full of demons stealing joy and crushing beatific vision pray the Lord bestow us pumpkin spice joy and pumpkin spice beatific vision thats makes men holy. Amen
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil

Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads. - Thoreau, Walden

Dearest St. Hildegard, let thy gracious prayer be for this: that in all things, we serve God in bringing souls, including our own, to Him, and delightfully so. Let righteousness enfold hearts moving in and moved by the arts. Let thanks be our joyous cry, our victory shout, our honoring trumpet blast, with gratitude that our Creator gave us the sensibility to know and love HIm; that He let us love as He loves, forgive as He forgives; and leads us to be as perfect in purity as He is. Actualize all our divinely-granted potential, St. Hildegard, for the chief end of uniting as the flock of our Good Shepherd, wisely using every gift He has given us. Thanks. AMEN

Thank you St Hildegard of Bingen for granted favor
