Run while you have the light of life, lest the darkness of death overtake you. Girded with faith and the performance of good works, let us follow in his (Jesus) paths by the guidance of the Gospel - Saint Benedict.

Saint Benedict, you witnessed the moral corruption in Rome at an early age and fled to the wilderness to seek out God’s will. Through your prayerful obedience to God’s will, inestimable good fruit has been borne. Please pray for me, that I will always seek out God’s will in my life, leaving behind the many temptations to sin that I encounter, so that God can use me in ways known only to Him. Saint Benedict, pray for us. (My Catholic Life)
