St. Benedict

When Benedict became a monk, he went to a cave at Subiaco. At that time monasteries were not very organized, and sometimes this was problematic when difficulties arose. Other monks noticed Benedict’s holiness and humility, so they asked him to be their leader. He wrote a rule for a way of life. He wanted his monks to live balanced lives and grow in virtue. The rule helped them worship God throughout the day in their prayer, work, and recreation.
