While the figure of St Benedict looms large in the landscape of saints, it is more on account of his Rule and his order than his person. Yet the life of St Benedict stands second only to the Rule itself in guiding the order throughout the course of history, “for the holy man could not otherwise teach than he himself lived.” Therefore, the Little Flowers sets forth the true spirit of the order for all. Filled with stories reminiscent of the great Patriarchs and Apostles, the Little Flowers of St Benedict unveils the heart of one “filled with the spirit of all the just,” the heart of one entirely devoted to God. May the present volume stand alongside all other great spiritual biographies in lighting a sure path to holiness.
