An event every year that begins at 12:00am on of February, repeating indefinitely

(d. 543)

The twin sister of St. Benedict, who was the founder of western monasticism; she was head of a convent not far from her brother’s monastery. Once while visiting with her brother, she prayed for a storm so he would not be able to leave and they could talk longer. She got her wish. “What have you done?” Benedict cried, to which his sister replied: “I asked you, but you were unwilling to listen to me; I asked my Lord, and he listened to me.” Saintly sibling squabbling!
