The Rule in Bits and Pieces is a collection of over 140 reflections covering every chapter of the Holy Rule of St. Benedict. In this collection, Father Donald Raila, O.S.B. has brought together a diversity of contributions from the Benedictine monks and Oblates of Saint Vincent Archabbey. Each contributor expresses his or her unique understanding of the power of the Rule as a tool for directing our daily, 21st century lives towards balance and fullness in Christ. Through these reflections, we see the inspiration and genius of St. Benedict in creating a daily rigor of prayer and work that supports our physical and emotional needs and furthers us along the path of spiritual development.
