St Benedict lived from 480 AD to 547 AD He founded the first monestary in Monte Casino He developed a detailed plan for monastic communities called The Rule of St Benedict The rules for the monestary were completely derived from the bible For what page or word of the Bible is not a perfect rule for temperal life What book of the Fathers does not proclaim that be a straight path we shall find God The Rule of St Benedict 56 He believed that the people that follow God and wish to enter into His kingdom after death must be humble in order to be raised in honor and allowed into heaven Everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled and he who humbles himself shall be exalted St Benedict forms twelve steps of humilty where after having climbed the last step you will be closer to God After being humbled you will be given the gift of heaven where there will no longer be evil and where there is a universal understanding of the plight of man When a monk has climbed all twelve steps he will find that perfect love of God which casts out fear by means of which everything he had observed anxiously before will now appear simple and natural St Benedict believes that to reach God we must follow his scripture From the Bible he knows that by doing this he will be brought to heaven Readily accept and faithfully follow the advice of a loving Father so that through out labour of obedience you may return to Him The Rule of St Benedict 47 St Benedict strongly believes in obedience to God This is the only way to His Kingdom By faithfully following God we will be blessed with the His grace Let us encompass ourselves with faith and the practice of good works and guided by the Gospel tread the path he has cleared for us Thus
