A Prayer for St. Benedict's Day

Today, July 11, is the day when the Church commemorates St. Benedict, and it is also an appropriate day to remember his sister, St. Scholastica. 

Almighty and everlasting God, you made your servant Benedict to teach us how to live in your service: Grant that by preferring your love to everything else and following the examples of Benedict and Scholastica, we may ever walk in the way of your commandments; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

(From the "New Book of Festivals and Commemorations" by Philip Pfatteicher)
