Benedictine monks have served the Patriarchal Basilica for more than 1,300 years, and in recent months have been supplemented by new members. They are presently building up their spiritual and pastoral presence in the Basilica, as well as preparing for the ecumenical task entrusted to them by the Holy Father. As the traditional custodians of the shrine of St Paul, the Apostle of the gentiles, they seek to live by his example: in Christ and with a constant care for the needs of all the churches.
