Who was St. Benedict?
|Saint Benedict was a rich young nobleman who left all his wealth to follow Jesus. He became a good holy hermit and spent much of his life living in a cave. Once he tried to help some monks lead holy lives, but when he tried to make them do penance they grew angry. Some even tried to poison him. But St. Benedict made the sign of the cross over the poisoned wine and by a miracle, the glass shattered|
|During his life, Saint Benedict performed many miracles. He found water on a desolate mountaintop to quench the thirst of his monks. Later, St. Benedict became the leader of many good monks and wrote a rule of the Benedictine. ‘I will do something to help other people live closer to God.’|
We always follow his rules and look up to him as our role model.
