Happy Feast Day to our Pope, and also to another inspiring priest, Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR!
I think the prayer from today’s Liturgy speaks volumes on the original St. Benedict as well as his two contemporary namesakes:
God our Father,
you made Saint Benedict and outstanding guide
to teach men how to live in your service.
Grant that by preferring your love to everything else,
we may walk in the way of your commandments.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
