On the 1st Sunday of Lent (Year C), Fr. Anthony Ho continues to describe to us the history of the early Church. Fr. Ho focuses on St. Benedict this time, describing his life and how he became a model for contemplative life. During his contemplative practice, he was able to repel the Devil’s temptation, leading to the popularization of the St. Benedict Medal in rejecting Satan’s advances. Finally, his spirituality heavily focuses on prayer, work and spiritual reading, which in turn deeply affected the principles and practice of contemplative life in later years.
