21 MARCH

. . . .is the traditional feast day of St. Benedict in the Roman rite. St. Benedict is considered the father of western monasticism. This link should lead you to every imaginable site on the net concerning the Benedictine way of life, Catholic, Anglican, and otherwise. While you're browsing, don't overlook the little website dedicated to Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek Monastery in Oklahoma. This is a daughter house of Fontgombault and maintains the ancient western liturgical rites. Or maybe you'll have to. The link - which is here - isn't responding today. Pfui. Well, you can read about its foundation here anyway.

It's also J.S. Bach's birthday.
