Item Description...
Overview
Born in 480 to a distinguished family in Nursia, Benedict as a young man abandoned his studies and gave up his inheritance to pursue a monastic life. He lived for several years as a hermit in Subiaco, where he was joined by a group of monks seeking a spiritual leader but after an attempt on his life moved to Monte Cassino and founded an abbey, considered the birthplace of the Benedictine order. It was in Monte Cassino that Benedict wrote his Rule and died in 547.Benedict required of himself and his monastic brothers a life of work, prayer and spiritual readinga pattern that each of us may reproduce in some form today. Benedict asks us to listen carefully and look for God, to practice obedience, humility and renunciation and finally to lose ourselves in the liturgy, in the Scriptures and in prayer. Not everyone is called to the monastic ideal of poverty, chastity and obedience but even the busiest person among us may draw nearer to God and live humbly and prayerfully, in the spirit of Saint Benedict.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Truly Seeking God  Jan 25, 2009
Gozier introduces the leader for this 15-day spiritual journey as the patron saint of failures. Benedict faced so many trials that he accepted them as his path to sainthood. Yet, Gozier writes, Benedict achieved his goal with the Rule he wrote for his religious community. The central theme of the retreat is to "truly seek God" as Benedict did. Topics include listening and looking for God, obedience, welcoming, peace, and prayer.

The sessions consist of a brief introduction followed by an exploration of the daily theme as played out in Benedict's life with applications for our time. Each session ends with reflection questions.

Session 2, Looking for God, centers on Chapter 4 of the Rule, 72 "instruments of the spiritual art." Gozier provides the list and points out that the final two instruments, make peace before sundown and never despair of God's mercy, summarize Benedict's whole teaching on forgiveness and hope. He recommends using the list as an examination of conscience. The day's reflection questions ask readers to think about ways these 72 "instruments of good works" can benefit our spiritual life: Which is my biggest challenge? Do I practice a measure of self-renunciation? Do I view the works of mercy as "antiquated"?

As part of a wider series, 15 Days of Prayer with Saint Benedict includes helpful guidelines for tailoring the retreat to personal preferences and schedules. The flexible format and short chapters make this a good resource for faith-sharing groups as well as individuals.
