St. Scholastica was celebrated on February 10
St. Scholastica was the sister of St. Benedict.   She is the patroness against storms and is often shown with a dove because at the moment of her death her brother, St. Benedict, had a vision of her soul flying to heaven in the form of a dove

To make a delicious Italian dish " Thunder and Lightning" in honor of St. Scholastica.
