Scholastica, twin sister of Saint Benedict, founded a community of women religious. The siblings met once a year, halfway between their monasteries, for a day of holy conversation. On one occasion, Scholastica begged Benedict to stay unusually late. He refused, but she prayed, and a storm arose making travel impossible. Three days later, Benedict received a vision of her soul flying to heaven in the form of a dove.
