Last weekend we had a come and see Benedictine Life Weekend. Two women attended. One from Kentucky and the other from Illinois. We had a great weekend! The theme was The Spirit of the Rule of Benedict. The Rule is the little book that Saint Benedict wrote for his monks 1,500 years ago on how to live Benedictine monastic life. Sister Jane Michele McClure provided the input Saturday morning. She talked about how she tries to live out the Rule in her day to day life, in her living and in her ministry as the director of development for Habitat for Humanity in Evansville, Indiana. Here are some pictures from the weekend.
Saturday was the Feast of the Passing of Saint Benedict so we had a little party that evening. Saint Benedict himself showed up for a visit, though he sounded an awful lot like Sister Jeannine!
