The Feast of St. Benedict

St. Benedict is the father of Western Monasticism, which helped preserve Western civilization during the centuries following the fall of the Roman Empire. Not a few have noted that our civilization needs a rediscovery and a reimplementation of St. Benedict's intentional Christian communities to combat the growing cultural darkness about us.

Sancte Benedicte, Ora pro nobis!
