"In many ways, St. Benedict of Nursia is the most pivotal of all the pivotal players, for perhaps more than anyone else, he contributed to saving Western culture. At a time when Roman order had collapsed and barbarian invaders were picking through the rubble of a once great civilization, Benedict founded the religious community that would, in time, preserve the best of the old and allow for the emergence of a particularly Christian way of life." -Bishop Barron
