Benedictine Spirituality

Revd Andy is a member of a dispersed Benedictine Community of lay and ordained, married and single people living out the Rule of St Benedict in their daily lives. The community is centred around Milton Abbey in Dorset. St Benedict of Nursia was a 4th Century monk who is remembered for his writing of a set of rules by which monastic communities could live. The Rule of St Benedict has influenced Christian living for centuries and is as relevant today, as it was when it was written, as we seek to live in community and love with those around us. For more information on The Benedictine Companions of the Abbey at Milton please see our website and our Facebook page.

Lord, arouse in your Church the spirit which guided our holy father Benedict.
Fill us with that spirit and grant that we may love what he loved and put into practice what he taught.
Help us to be steadfast in the service of your will,
that we may grow in number and holiness.
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
