Hildegard of Bingen Becomes Recognized Saint

I know this is a bit off topic and random but I was just searching the internet and saw that Hildegard of Bingen was just declared a saint on Thursday. I knew I had heard that name before and yep she wrote the Symphonia that we read a couple weeks ago. I know that she has been considered a saint before but she was never formally canonized by the Church and she was canonized by equivalent canonization which is used when people are already considered saints beforehand. So I have no reason for posting this, but I thought it was interesting since it was just Thursday when it happened and I thought I'd share.
