Like most kids, twins Benedict and Scholastica spent their childhoods climbing trees, racing, and even bickering. Then their lives took extraordinary turns as they entered adulthood. Scholastica cared for those in need, while miracles guided Benedict's life as he grew into a spiritual leader. Despite living far away from each other, the twins' bond helped Benedict develop the Rule of St. Benedict, creating a sense of community within the monasteries, which continues to guide the Benedictine Order today.
