It’s Not About the Title

Reflect

The community so admired Benedict the African (1526–1589), their cook, that they named him as superior although he was not a priest. Benedict served a single term, then went back to the kitchen because he believed his gifts were better used through cooking and one-on-one ministry.


Pray

Saint Benedict the African,
I am easily flattered
by the praise of others.
May I, as you did,
discern where it is
that God truly wants me.


Act

Make a list of three things at which others say that you excel. Which is God calling you to do?
