Everyday reflections for everyday living

The Rule of St Benedict has much to say about faith, work, and daily living.  In a time when many are seeking space, silence, and spiritual depth.  The Rule retains relevance in a world where change is often feared, stability can be elusive, and busyness interferes with listening to God.  Life with St Benedict provides daily reflections on the Rule as an aid to enabling personal spiritual growth and prayer.  Benedictine communities use a well-established pattern of daily readings to enable the entire Rule to be considered over a four-month period.  Life with St Benedict follows this pattern.  Each four-month long period begins on 1 January, 2 May, and 1 September; and each entry shows three dates on which it can be read.  There are 122 readings and reflections in each period.
