The Feast of St. Benedict
is today. There is information on him here. To all the Benedictines, Cistercians, and others who follow St. Benedict's Rule in some form, out there, (especially at St. Vincent Archabbey and St. Emma Monastery), and for all those who have him as a patron, Happy Feast Day !

Here is a link to an article on St. Benedict by Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O.

Today is also the feast of St. Oliver Plunkett, Archbishop and Martyr. There is information on him here. He was the last of the Tyburn Martyrs. Check out the website for Tyburn Convent. (The nuns at Tyburn Convent are, BTW, Benedictines....)
