For children ages 10 and up, St. Benedict: The Story of the Father of the Western Monks reveals an epic story of a great life and legendary miracles! It tells the tale of St. Benedict—how he founded his ancient order, as well as lesser known anecdotes such as his sister, St. Scholastica and how he changed these ancient mysteries into a set of moral spiritual practices still in existence today.

It's filled with extraordinary moments like when he changed poisoned wine into water or how he saved a body from drowning; St. Benedict even raised one from the dead! This book sheds new light on his amazing blessings, theology and courage to push past fear.

As readers embark on this gem, they’ll experience the same courage that made St. Benedict famous throughout history and uncover lessons of mercy, forgiveness and divine strength always within reach for us all. By discovering this powerful figure in history—and connecting it to our daily lives today — kids will unlock transformational takeaways that open doors to a spiritual practice full of peace, joy and new perspective far beyond what was already known about him before now!

Mary Fabyan Windeatt:

Mary Fabyan Windeatt lived from 1910-1979 and grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada. The Mount Saint Vincent College awarded her a Licentiate of Music degree when she was just seventeen, and she began writing Catholic works when she was about twenty-four. Later she sent one of her stories to a Catholic magazine, and after it was accepted, she continued to write. In total she composed at least twenty-one children's books, as well as periodical children's pages written for The Torch, a monthly Dominican magazine. Mary Windeatt is most renowned for her many novels of the saints, which she wrote specifically for children, including lives on the Children of Fatima, Cure of Ars, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Rose of Lima and many others.
