Cumque perfusis lacrimis - St Scholastica No 6

V. Benedictae tam efficaces lacrimae, per quas caeli serenitas ad pluviam redacta est.
R. Unde venerabilis Benedictus, et qui cum eo venerant, ad honorem Dei pernoctaverunt.

V. So efficacious were the tears of the blessed [Scholastica] that through her clear sky was turned to rain
R. Thence the venerable Benedict and those who came with him watched all night giving honour of God.
