Buona Festa!

Oggi e la Festa di San Benedetto, Abate e Patrono d'Europa.

Happy Feast Day to all my Benedictine friends and loved ones. I am mindful of the dedicated and hard-working Benedictine Sisters who taught me in grade school, of the Benedictine men of St. John's Abbey, Collegeville who have contributed immensely to the liturgical scholarship of the Church globally and to me personally, and the Benedictine community of Sant'Anselmo where I will soon study.

Praise be to our Heavenly Father for the gift of St. Benedict, his holy rule, and the men and women who follow it.
