The icon of St. Benedict of Nursia is a representation of Fra Angelico style. He is a saint most needed in our times. He communicates to us the need for the ascetical life, contemplation, and communal life of one heart and mind for God. He is also the father of exorcism where his image and cross are still being used to drive out demons today. This icon reveals the mystery of Heaven on Earth. In other words, the Saints are walking among us. St. Benedict pray for us.
