Oblate's Personal Rule of Life

When the Desert Fathers began the monastic tradition, they had little to guide them, inasmuch as these first monks started the tradition. In the sixth century, our Holy Father Benedict proposed his holy Rule as a guide for monks. Today, the Rule of St. Benedict continues to be a guide for monks and for oblates.

This Personal Rule of Life might also be helpful to Benedictine Oblates of Saint Meinrad Archabbey seeking to keep the three promises and five duties ever in their sight.
