Welcome to the Benedictine Oblates Website
We have just had a summer of one horrifying news item after another. The surface cause of many of these incidents is religious intolerance, despite all main religious leaders having condemned the use of violence to impose one set of beliefs over another. History shows that this is not a new phenomenon, but then the only lesson that we seem capable of learning from history, as generations of history teachers have intoned, is that we never learn the lessons of history. I found myself wondering what we could learn from the Rule of St Benedict.
