SPIRITUAL LIFE

The Benedictine Model

Benedictus means blessing in Latin. About 1500 years ago, St. Benedict wrote a Rule of Order for monastic life. The Benedictines seek to be faithful in finding God in the circumstances of everyday life. The students are expected to write their own rule of life by studying philosophy and resolve conflicts on their own based on a deeper understanding of the dignity of the human person.
