An Invitation from Saint Benedict
Come to know the spiritual depths of Saint Benedict, a man who thought that there was nothing more important in life than to seek God and for whom nothing was to be preferred to the love of Christ. Benedict found God in many different ways: in the goodness and wonders of creation; in his fellow human beings, created in the image and likeness of God; in the prayerful reading of the Scriptures; in the Sacraments and in the prayer of the Church. This book can help you to journey with Jesus and Saint Benedict in Lent and thus help you to seek God more fervently and to live according to his commandments in faith, hope, and love.
