Saint Benedict of Nursia

Saint Benedict of Nursia (480-554) was the founder of the monasteries after his name. Benedict discouraged extreme mortification and insisted upon hard work. He was sickened by the vice he saw in Rome he retreated to the hills.

To Benedict, the monastery was a school for the service of the Lord. Benedict possessed second sight and prophecy. Stories were told of his prophetic powers and the ability to read men's minds. The Benedictine rule professes only to lay down a pattern of life for the Monk's at Monte Cassino but it served as a guide for the monks of the whole western empire.. Rule of St. Benedict: let no-one do what is best for themselves, but for another.

The rule of Saint Benedict is a remarkable example of spiritual wisdom, containing a healthy balance between the requirements of prayer and study, work and rest. It included the basic vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Saint Benedict believed in a communal discipline.
