When St Benedict of Nursia put down his pen some time in the sixth century, he had completed one of the most remarkable and long-lasting achievements of his and any other century. Since his time, there have been men and women committed to the search for God that he describes, a search that has always been shared with Oblates, friends, pilgrims and visitors who have come to Benedict's monasteries since the beginning. This handbook is one expression of that ongoing sharing.
