Good Jesus, Saint Benedict believed in excelling and doing his very best to honor You. When he attended school, the undisciplined attitude of the other students dismayed him. Later, when he founded twelve monasteries, the demand for spiritual excellence in his Monastic Rule was so frustrating to lazy monks, some of them tried to poison him, but he blessed the drink and consumed it with no ill effects. I ask him to pray for the protection of my family, my church, and my friendships against the wickedness of Satan. Teach us, O Lord, to use Your cross to conquer the evil in our world today. Saint Benedict, pray for us. Amen.
