Pope Pius XII writes on the life, times and the message of the great Father of Western Monasticism: St. Benedict. Pius XII explains and insists on the relevancy of the Rule of St. Benedict to the modern world. “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
Through the annals of history shine those few rays of light in times of darkness when all hope is vanquished and truth obscured. Pope Pius XII recounts in his encyclical Fulgens Radiatur a brief narrative of the life and rule of St. Benedict, unfolding for us its pertinence to our day and age and proving the effectiveness of the Benedictines from the time of their founder. A definitive synopsis and coherent explanation of the Rule of St. Benedict, this encyclical illustrates the Benedictine role in the preservation of literature and learning. Their manual and intellectual pursuits fostered such love for God and zeal for the salvation of souls that their energy knew no bounds in promoting the principles of religion and norms of conduct which have always been the safest and soundest foundations of human society.
