15 Days of Prayer with Saint Benedict
Follow the footsteps of Saint Benedict
Follow the footsteps of Saint Benedict. Born in 480 to a distinguished Family| in Nursia, Benedict as a young man abandoned his studies and gave up his inheritance to pursue a monastic life.Benedict required of himself and his monastic brothers a life of work, prayer and spiritual reading a pattern that anyone may reproduce in some form today. Benedict asks us to listen carefully and look for God, to practice obedience, humility and renunciation and finally to lose ourselves in the liturgy, in the Scriptures and in prayer.
