Some Basic Benedictine Links

For those of us who are just beginning to plumb the riches of Benedictine Spirituality, here are some links I've found helpful, particularly for those of us in the world. Please feel free to add more to this thread. I'm sure I've missed a lot of them!

Rule of St Benedict

The Online Guide to Saint Benedict

The Jubilee Medal of St. Benedict

Oblates of the Order of St. Benedict

Benedictine Oblates: Introduction for Inquirers and Candidates

There are also some great basic books:

"The Benedictine Handbook"

"Seeking God: The Way of St. Benedict,", by Esther de Waal

"St. Benedict: A Rule for Beginners," by Julian Stead, OSB

anything by Blessed Columba Marmion, including "Union with God: Letters of Spiritual Direction" and "Christ, the Life of the Soul"

  1. Thanks for the links. I am reading "John Cassian on Prayer" for Lent.

    I also use Doyle's translation of the Rule and I use "Benedictine Daily Prayer" and I am just starting the "Monastic Diurnal" (oh boy!).


Let's talk about it!
