Patrick Campbell

Founder of the Cross of St. Benedict Society

Patrick Campbell, founder of The Cross of St. Benedict, shares his story of how his family was once devastated by divorce and financial hardship. Their large blended family of nine children suffered from psychological and chronic physical illnesses. In a sudden turn of events, the Lord literally called out this family in a hilarious superhero adventure of evangelization that is quite "outside-the-box." As Benedictine Oblates, the Campbell's live their Benedictine promise by building spiritual weapons, particularly the Cross of St. Benedict and sacred drawings as armours against the forces of evil to defend the family. Their story, featured in EWTN, Radio Maria, The Sunday Visitor, and (soon) on Lighthouse Catholic Media, brings hope and courage to a myriad of families under attack and facing challenges, changes, and difficulties in today's society.
