Benedict required of himself and his monastic brothers a life of work, prayer and spiritual reading - a pattern that anyone may reproduce in some form today. Benedict asks us to listen carefully and look for God, to practice obedience, humility, and renunciation, and finally lose ourselves in the liturgy, in the scriptures, and in prayer. Not everyone is called to the monastic ideal of poverty, chastity, and obedience, but even the busiest person may draw nearer to God and live humbly and prayfully, in the spirit of Saint Benedict.
