Happy Feast of St. Benedict!

Today is the traditional Feast of St. Benedict. This photo was taken during a 2015 OC-Travel pilgrimage to the birthplace of St. Benedict in Norcia, Italy. Our group had a private Mass in the Basilica.   One year later, this revered international place of pilgrimage was laid in ruins after a horrendous earthquake. Pray for the monks and people of Norcia who are still rebuilding. Norcia is still in rough shape.  Interesting bit of trivia: did you know St. Benedict is the patron against poison?
