Mission

The Benedictine Monks of the Divine Will is a Catholic religious community in the Diocese of San Marino-Montefeltro, Italy. Established by the Bishop of San Marino-Montefeltro, Mons. Andrea Turazzi, the monks live a contemplative Benedictine life of work and prayer.

The Benedictines of Divine Will (Ordo Sancti Benedicti ad persequendam Divinam Voluntatem, OSBDV) are little children of Christ the King and Mary the Queen who strive to live in the Kingdom of Divine Will on “earth as it is in heaven.” They live the life of the Holy Family of Nazareth in the New Eden of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Guided by the Holy Spirit and under the protection of St. Joseph they utilize the ancient monastic wisdom of St. Benedict with Eucharistic Adoration and the writings of the Servant of God Luisa Picaretta to glorify the Eternal Father.

The community ideal is life at Nazareth: perfect peace, joy and love.
