Benedict required of himself and his monastic brothers a life of work, prayer, and spiritual reading - a pattern that each of us may reproduce in some form today. Benedict asks us to listen carefully and look for God, to practice obedience, humility, and renunciation, and finally to lose ourselves in the liturgy, in the Scriptures, and in prayer. Not everyone is called to the monastic ideal of poverty, chastity, and obedience, but even the busiest person among us may draw nearer to God and live humbly and prayerfully, in the spirit of Saint Benedict.
