On the occasion of the Solemnity of Sant’Anselmo, the community of Sant’Anselmo was blessed with an article by Antonio Tarallo entitled “Sant’Anselmo on the Aventine, when singing makes you love God”. Tarallo writes:

“On the Aventine stands the church of Sant’Anselmo, which, together with the adjoining monastery, is the seat of the Abbot Primate of the Benedictine Order. From these walls Gregorian chant resounds strongly, giving glory to God and helping to love Him. A bit like a prayer from the saint to whom the church is dedicated and whose liturgical memorial recurs today.”

We recommend this article, written in Italian on La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, to all of our readers, students and residents:
