Mother Benedict hid from the Nazis in her French Benedictine monastery during World War II, and after liberation by American GIs she pledged to return to the U.S. to found a monastery to pray for and bless her homeland. The story of the founding of Regina Laudis Abbey in Connecticut eventually became the basis for the acclaimed movie Come To The Stable, which was nominated for eight Oscars.
