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?
