St. Benedict is viewed as the father of western monasticism and his rule is one that has transformed men and women into saints for over 1500 years.
The gaze of the monastic father is one that eminantes a holy and penetrating sense of peace. This portrait is housed in the one of St. Benedict's original monasteries in Monte Cassino in Northern Italy. This portrait is one that conveys much of how St. Benedict is remembered; Disciplined, kind, humble, and holy. A saintly patriarch and example for all catholics.
A Catholic treasure and a beautiful piece of art for any Catholic home.
