Book Description Tan Books Publishers Inc., United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. I have had enough of this new Abbot! announced one of the monks at Vicovaro. Yes, Abbot Benedict thinks we have to be always obeying those rules he set up! agreed another. Remember the good old days when we could each do whatever we wanted? put in a third. I ve had enough of him too, agreed yet another. And the feeling was spreading. Although Benedict knew that the monks were no longer his friends, he never guessed how bitter they felt toward him. Soon an evil plot was hatched. If the Abbot were secretly served some poison-in a glass of wine, for instance-the monks would soon be rid of the troublesome Benedict. One day at dinner the wicked plan was put into action. The server came in as usual with a glass of wine to set before the Abbot. It looked the same as it always did, but the monks knew that tonight it was poisoned. What was going to happen now? This book gives the answer. It also tells how Benedict founded the Benedictine Order, how he fought the devil, how he saved a boy from drowning, how he raised another from the dead-as well as about his twin sister who was a nun. All in all, this is the wonderful story of the life and miracles of the great Saint Benedict, the famous man known as the Father of Western Monasticism. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780895554277

Book Description Tan Books & Publishers, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New Softcover; Mary Fabyan Windeatt could well be called the "storyteller of the saints", for such indeed she was. And she had a singular talent for bringing out doctrinal truths in her stories, so that without even realizing it, young readers would see the Catholic catechism come to life in the lives of the saints. This is the story of how Benedict founded the Benedictine Order, how he fought the devil, how he saved a boy from drowning, how he raised another from the dead- as well as about his twin sister who was a nun. All in all, this is the wonderful story of the life and miracles of the great Saint Benedict, the famous man known as the "Father of Western Monasticism.". Bookseller Inventory # 004523
