Saints FlashCard Series
Saint Benedict FlashCard is perfect for studying and recalling important information on this holy saint.
Benedict was born into a distinguished family in central Italy, studied at Rome, and early in life was drawn to monasticism. At first he became a hermit, leaving a depressing world—pagan armies on the march, the Church torn by schism, people suffering from war, morality at a low ebb. He soon realized that he could not live a hidden life in a small town any better than in a large city, so he withdrew to a cave high in the mountains for three years.
A flashcard is a card bearing information, as words or numbers, on either or both sides, used in classroom drills or in private study. Flashcards are widely used as a learning drill to aid memorization. Online flashcards are a great way to study!
