St Benedict (Not this year!)

July 11 is the Memoria of St Benedict, however, as it was the World Cup Final today, to use football terminolgy, this is 'relegated to the sub's bench' this year, 15th Sunday of Ordinary time taking it's place in the starting 11!

To you, therefore, my words are now addressed,
whoever you may be,
who are renouncing your own will
to do battle under the Lord Christ, the true King,
and are taking up the strong, bright weapons of obedience.

St Benedict
