Rule of St. Benedict
« on: May 04, 2010, 03:19:13 PM »
Christ is Risen!!!
             I was wondering if anyone knew where to find a reliable translation of the Holy Rule of St Benedict.
All my hope I place in you, O Mother of God, keep me under your protection!

St. John of Kronstadt Press also has a book with the Rule, the Life, and the Service to St. Benedict.

I thought he was a Catholic saint? Or is this pre-schism, or...?

Someone explain for the newbie, please. :)

St Benedict of Nursia is a pre-schism saint. Late 5th-mid 6th century.

As LBK already wrote, St Benedict is pre-schism. There is even a Benedictine Orthodox Monastery in Canada (http://christminster.org).

The monastery runs an oblate programme.  The sister with the monks in the photo is Sister Sophia and she is a Benedictine oblate of Christminster monastery.

Thanks, I was just curious. I used to have a St. Benedict rosary.
