Happy feast of St. Benedict!

I am squeezing this post in before the feast is over...just barely. Today is a big feast day for CC monastery and the monks really made the most of it! High Mass was beautiful -the organ was played (which is normally suppressed during lent) and it seemed that almost half of the congregation was assisting at the mass. Today's feast commemorates the passing of St. Benedict from this world and his entering the next.
