Saint Benedict was from Nursia, near Rome, and was the twin brother of Saint Scholastica. He lived many years as a hermit before founding his monastery at Monte Cassino. There, he penned his Rules for Life, the “Rule of Saint Benedict,” which established the guidelines of the Western monastic tradition. Saint Benedict’s rules still inform the missions and lifestyles of religious orders today.
