St Benedict healing.jpgThere was a man of venerable life, Benedict, blessed by grace and by name, who, leaving home and patrimony and desiring to please God alone, sought out the habit of holy living. (entr. ant.)

O God, who made the Abbot Saint Benedict an outstanding master in the school of divine service, grant we pray, that putting nothing before love of you, we may hasten with a loving heart in the way of your commands.
May Saint Benedict rich bless and continue to call to deeper conversion all believers, and in particular those monks, nuns, sisters and laity who follow the Holy Rule as a way life.
