List of *all* Benedictine Saints


#1

Yes, I am aware of this: osb.org/gen/saints/osbcal.html* ;)

I just find it a tad hard to believe that an order that is 1500 years old has only 20 saints.:confused:

Not to mention that certain "big" Benedictine Saints (Romualdo, aka Romuald) are not on the list.

Help, please.:)

*it is odd to me that St Bernardo Tolomei (Olivetan) and St Giovanni Gualberto (Valombrosian) are on the list, while Romualdo (Camaldolese) is not.

That's not all of them. That just looks like the ones that have feast days on the calendar.

Not every saint on earth has had a movement of people to push for his or her canonization.

Marty: thanks for this list--my patron saint, Rupert of Salzburg, is there. He is a saint honored by both RC and EO, as a missionary to the people of the north. Love him and honor to him!!
