Product Description

The life of the saint who founded the Benedictine order, written by a later saint and Pope. The translation is by an anonymous Benedictine nun, and was first printed in 1898.

Benedict of Nursia (Italian: San Benedetto da Norcia) (480 – 547) was a saint from Italy, the founder of Western Christian monasticism, and a rule-giver for monks.

His purpose may be gleaned from his Rule, namely that "Christ may bring us all together to life eternal."

The Rule of Benedict became one of the most influential religious rules in Western Christendom. For this reason Benedict is often called the founder of western Christian monasticism.

Benedict was canonized by Pope Honorius III in the year 1220.

Two ways, Peter, we are carried out of ourselves: for either by sinfulness of thought we fall beneath ourselves, or by the grace of contemplation we are raised above ourselves. &quote;

thus by the wounds of his flesh he cured those of his soul, by turning pleasure into pain; and by the vehemence of outward torments he extinguished the unlawful flame which burnt within overcoming sin by changing the fire. After which time, as he himself related to his disciples, he was so free from the like temptation, that he never felt any such motion. &quote;

In my opinion, Peter, a bad community may be tolerated where there are found at least some good which may be helped. But where there is no benefit to be expected of any good, labour is many times lost upon the bad. &quote;
