Saint Benedict Print

Saint Benedict of Nursia is sometimes called the Father of Western Monasticism. He came from a Roman noble family, but repelled by the worldliness of Rome when he went there to study, he retreated into the countryside to life and pray quietly. There he met other monks, some living as hermits and others living in communities. When the abbot of a nearby monastery died, Benedict was asked to assume the leadership of the monastery. However, it was not a success. The monks found his rules too strict and some of them tried to poison him. For a time Benedict returned to living as a solitary monk, but eventually he gathered like minded followers. He founded a number of monasteries, including the famous hilltop monastery of Monte Cassino between Rome and Naples. Saint Benedict wrote a rule describing how monks in community should lead their life in work and prayer. This Rule of St. Benedict has become the inspiration for many monastic orders.

Saint Benedict's feast day is on July 11th. He is the patron saint, among many other things, of Europe, of students, and of people in religious orders.
