February 7 – St. Romuald


He belonged to a family of dukes. At the age of 22, Romuald retreated to a Benedictine monastery after having seen how his father killed a man in a duel. He reformed monasteries and founded others looking for solitude and austerity of life. St. Romuald’s originality was to adapt the rules of St. Benedict to the isolated life of silence and solitude.
