BEN Talks from St. John's University, Collegeville, MN

The Benedictine Institute of St. John's University would like to draw your attention to a new offering called BEN Talks.  The fourteen BEN Talks videos are similar to TED Talks in length and style; however, this series is focused on Benedictine values and is delivered by monastic members of Saint John’s Abbey and Saint Benedict’s Monastery.  BEN Talks help viewers gain a better understanding of the Benedictine history and values that shape the culture of our community.  Not only will you learn more about The Rule of St. Benedict and monastic life, but you will be prompted to reflect on how this wisdom can apply to your own lives and work. 

Here are the specific BEN Talks videos and their presenters:

  • Series overview, “Wisdom Throughout the Ages,” Fr. Columba Stewart, OSB.
  • “Awareness of God,” Fr. Michael Peterson, OSB.
  • “Community Living,” Sr. JoAnne Backes, OSB.
  • “Conversion,” Fr. Efrain Rosado, OSB.
  • “Dignity of Work,” Sr. Mary Weidner, OSB.
