St. Benedict pray for Christendom

July 11, 2016

St. Benedict (d. 543 Monte Cassino, Italy) is not just a Patron Saint of Europe, his Rule and the monasteries/abbeys he founded formed Western Europe which became Christendom-the never-surpassed pinnacle of human civilisation.

Today is St. Benedict’s feast day in the Novus Ordo calendar.

St. Benedict, pray for Europe and for the souls of Europeans, and we will pray  for men and women to answer their call to the Benedictine religious life. Amen.
