Drum roll please…

Last week, Pope Benedict XVI announced that the Church will be welcoming in two new Doctors this fall. St. John of Avila, a young diocesan priest of the Spanish Renaissance, and St. Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine nun of the German Middle Ages, will be proclaimed Doctors of the Universal Church this October—just in time for the Year of Faith!

During his announcement, the Holy Father said:

The grace of the Holy Spirit enabled them to experience profound understanding of divine revelation and intelligent dialogue with the world, two factors which represent the perennial goal of the life and activity of the Church.
 St. John of Avila and St. Hildegard of Bingen, pray for us.
