The Feast of St Benedict of Nursia

Sentence For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all, training us to renounce impiety and worldly passion, and in the present age to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly. (Titus 2:11-12)
Collect O God, your blessed Son has humbled himself so that we may reap a life of abundance: save us O Lord, that we may abstain from the enticement of the temporal world, let us take heed of the pious deeds of your servant Benedict, that we may serve you devotedly all the days of our life, we ask this through your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.
