Saint Benedict of Nurse

O God, you called Saint Benedict into the wilderness to dwell with you in solitude, and into the heart of a community to dwell with you in service to others. Through his intercession, lead us by your word to hear and heed your will for us this day and every day, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
