Catholic Benedictine Monasticism has been with Christianity for many centuries. St. Benedict wrote his Rule for Monks during the first half of the sixth century. He died in 548 CE. Benedictine monasticism has existed in the western church since St. Benedict’s time. There have been many different economic and social systems, many governmental arrangements in which monks served the Lord.
Monks seek God. Monks seek to accept the Gospel and hope to be transformed by it
