Pilgrimage with St. Hildegard von Bingen through Creation

Our journey today will be a pilgrimage with a trailblazing woman saint, whom Pope Benedict XVI named a Doctor of the Church. She was a musician and composer, a theologian and mystic, an herbalist and healer, and a preacher and reformer in the High Middle Ages.
