What is part of history to us now was a bold, risky step into the future.Benedict had the holiness and the ability to take this step.The power of the voice without foundation in the heart was the goal of the student's education.
He left these monasteries abruptly when the envious attacks of another hermit made it impossible to continue the spiritual leadership he had taken.
Hearing words one time was not enough -- "We wish this Rule to be read frequently to the community." Benedict realized the strongest and truest foundation for the power of words was the Word of God itself: "For what page or word of the Bible is not a perfect rule for temporal life?
" He had experienced the power of God's word as expressed in Scripture: "For just as from the heavens the rain and snow come down and do not return there till they have watered the earth, making it fertile and fruitful, giving seed to him who sows and bread to him who eats, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; It shall not return to me void, but shall do my will, achieving the end for which I sent it" (Isaiah -11).
But it was in Monte Cassino he founded the monastery that became the roots of the Church's monastic system.
Instead of founding small separate communities he gathered his disciples into one whole community.
