November 13 used to be the feast day to give thanks for all saints of the Benedictine family. With a spareness and reticence that is not entirely un-monastic, however, the celebration of all these monastic saints has been conflated into the solemnity of All Saints. Still, this re-arrangement does not prevent us from giving thanks for the immense cloud of witnesses lighting the way by their examples and prayers.
Among a number of sources by which to get to know these men and women is Alexius Hoffmann, O.S.B.,’s revision of Lechner’s Ausführliches Martyrologium des Benedictiner-Ordens und seiner Verzweigungen. Follow this link for the list. Apparently, Hoffmann’s book is back in print.
