It’s time to celebrate!

Here are a few other easy ways to celebrate with St. Benedict:
- Build your own “prayer cave.” St. Benedict lived as a hermit in a mountain cave so he could focus on his spirituality. Help your little saints build their own fortress of faith using pillows and blankets from around the house. Encourage them to imagine what it was like for St. Benedict to live all alone in a cave, and encourage them to spend a few moments in prayer.
- Create family rules. St. Benedict wrote the Rule of Benedict to guide the conduct of the Benedictine monks. What are your family rules? Create a “Rule of [your family’s last name]” that can help guide your family on your path to holiness.
- Feed the crows. Legend tells us that St. Benedict was always accompanied by two crows. After reading about the miracle involving St. Benedict, poisoned bread, and his crows on your Feast Day Art print, grab some NOT poisoned bread and feed your neighborhood feathered friends.
