Watch Mother Dolores read from the Life and Miracles of St. Benedict by Pope St. Gregory the Great,
Chapter VII, How Maurus Walked Upon the Water

Brother Maurus, run as fast as you can, for Placidus, that went to the lake to fetch water, is fallen in, and is carried a good way off.

Plus a short reflection on our beloved Mother Placid by Mother Dolores!
