Pope Francis and the Benedictines

From an article on Pope Francis’s visit with the Benedictine abbots and conventual priors:

“Your service to the church is very precious,” Pope Francis said; “Even today there is a need for men and women who put nothing before the love of Christ,” who receive daily nourishment from God’s word, who celebrate the holy liturgy in a dignified manner and who work in harmony with creation.

(H/t to Greg Herr for the link).
