In the sixth century, a monk named Benedict devised a code of practical principles by which he and his fellow monks could live together and grow in Christian spirit. Centuries later, the Rule of St. Benedict continues to guide and nurture contemporary men and women who seek to live a balanced spirituality. This contemplative guide is for individuals of all faiths in search of timeless wisdom.
