The Good Samaritan Benedictine tradition is characterised by the values it embraces as being central to daily living. These foundational values are inspired by the ancient wisdom of the Rule of Benedict and go to the very heart of the Gospel message as exemplified in the Parable of the Good Samaritan. While some are commonly used terms, these values take on new vibrancy and depth when viewed through the Good Samaritan Benedictine lens.
