Today is the Feast of St. Benedict of Nursia, 5th century saint, the father of western monasticism, and author of The Rule of St. Benedict.

To celebrate this special saint, Benjamin and I read The Holy Twins: Benedict and Scholastica, illustrated by one of our favorites, Tomie de Paola.

I ordered it last year but it was a little too wordy for him at that point and didn’t keep his attention very well. This year he seemed to really dig it and wanted to talk about the miracles and stories in the book.

I highly recommend it! In fact, all of Tomie de Paola’s books on saints are really great.
