Feast of St. Benedict

Today is the Feast Day of St. Benedict, one of the more important and influential saints of the Catholic Church, and also one of the individuals who helped form and shape Western civilization.

Who was St. Benedict? The Online Guide to St. Benedict has an excellent biography of him, as well as a lot of useful resources on his life.

He was born about the year 480, and died around 547.
