This rule of life is – in Christ – the heart and soul of the most successful religious order in history. Written by a spiritual father for his children, The Rule of St. Benedict is not only an ideal guide for the individual wishing to follow the Benedictine path; it is also an indispensable tool for the spiritualization of family life. A timeless classic by the founder of Western monasticism.
