Feast of All Saints of the Benedictine Order

Image: Benedictine Saints

Of the breviaries on my shelf that I use throughout the week is "A Short Breviary for Religious and the Laity" 2nd Edition from The Liturgical Press in 1942.  It is a breviary made by monks of the Benedictine Order.

On Page 548 there is a note: "Because this Office is also used by the Brothers and the Oblates of the Benedictine Order, the first and second class feasts of the Benedictine Calendar are added to those of the Roman Calendar."

And today, November 13th, is the Feast of "All Saints of the Benedictine Order."  Today, as such, is a great day for us to rejoice in the life of St. Benedictine and the many other Benedictine saints.


Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that the example of the holy monks may stir us to a better life, so that we may imitate the actions of those whose solemnity we celebrate.  Through our Lord.  Amen.
