"On the sixth day of his illness he commanded them to carry him into the church, and there to give him the Eucharist. He then stood between the hands of his brothers, with hands outstretched towards heaven, and between his prayers he breathed out his spirit." – St Aelfric. This painted panel of St Benedict's death is from Douai Abbey.
