The feast day of St Benedict is tomorrow, July 11.
However ,we celebrated this feast today, as we shared lunch with some other Catholic homeschoolers and learned a little bit about the life of St Benedict.
He is the patron saint against poisoning and Pope Paul VI also recommended St Benedict as the patron saint of Europe.
The older kids in the group wrote their own rule of life, after discussion on the
Rule of St Benedict. The younger kids did copywork and colouring in. And one of the mothers distributed medals of St Benedict.
We also shared Italian food for lunch – the saint was born in Italy, after all~!
You can read daily sections of the Rule .
