Gospel text
Mt 19,27-29
Jesus answered, «Those who have left houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children or property for my Name's sake, they will receive a hundredfold and be given eternal life».
Gospel's Commentary
Today is the St. Benedict's festivity (480-547), the founder of benedictins: with his life and his work, had a fundamental influence on the development of European civilization and culture. This is how the reality we call “Europe” came into being. St Benedict's life was steeped in an atmosphere of prayer, the foundation of his existence. Without prayer there is no experience of God. — The great monk is still a true master at whose school we can learn to become proficient in true humanism.
