Product Description

Product Description

NOTE: This edition has a linked "Table of Contents" and has been beautifully formatted (searchable and interlinked) to work on your Amazon e-book reader, Amazon Desktop Reader and your ipod e-book reader.

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.

HASH(0xa00e4f90) out of 5 stars An incredible saint. St. Benedict Aug. 10 2015
By L. Lieuw - Published on Amazon.com

I never know exactly who Saint Benedict was. By this story of his life I become to know him much better who he was. By his miracles and dedication of his whole life by serving the Lord in the isolated mountains. He had the great power of the Almighty God to cast away demons. That's is the first thing I'm been known about him. He had an incredible Love for who he was serving the only truly God of eternity. Saint Benedict pray and stay with us, Amen.

I am enjoying this book. It is so simple to read with the layout into little chapters. The older language makes it difficult sometimes to spot typing errors. One reason why I haven't given 5stars. I am not a reader and have found that this is an awesome way to read as the app is on my phone and my phone is always with me. Thank you Amazon and thank you Wyatt.

Have always venerated this saint but didn't realize how influential, powerful,and truly humble he was. Easy to read and understand his spirituality in this little book. All of Wyatt north's book are small and easy to read and understand.
