St Benedict
The Russian Orthodox commemorate him not 13 days later as you might think but six days. The feast-days don’t always match. From Brother Stephen. More.
Benedict, the man of the Lord, gentle of countenance, was adorned with angelic ways; and so great a brightness shone forth round about him that, yet although upon the earth, he might be dwelling among celestial beings.
— the Monastic Breviary
