St. Benedict of Norcia, 480-543

The founder of western monasticism gave himself to defending the immaculate unity and purity of the Church which Christ founded. He and his brothers lived against the accusations of woundedness and ambiguity in the Church with the integrity and clarity of the whole self, armed, as Benedict put it, "with the bright and shining armor of obedience."
