The Rule of Saint Benedict
Drawing on the Dialogues of St. Gregory and St. Benedict’s Rule for Monks, Goberna uses the life and writings of Saint Benedict to address in a modern and simple way the longings for sincerity, simplicity, and value that were as heartfelt in his lifetime as they are today. His message remains as valid as ever, especially because he invites readers to experience the abiding happiness that is a fruit of the Spirit. Benedict would surely recognize himself in this fresh portrait, through which he still offers a seam of gold to all who long for sure guidance in the ways of prayer and in relationships among family and community. Sr. Regina’s lively touch of Benedictine realism is sure to challenge and satisfy readers — young and not-so-young alike.
