St. Scholastica

St. Scholastica is the patron saint of nuns and against rain. A nun, she consecrated her life to God when she was young. According to the writing of St. Gregory, St. Scholastica’s brother, St. Benedict, visited with her about once a year to talk of spiritual matters. On one occasion, St. Scholastica prayed to God that her brother wouldn’t have to leave, and it began to thunder and pour. She died in 543.
