From the Roman Martyrology: Today, 21st March is "the birthday [i.e., day of his death and entry into heavenly life] of the holy abbot Benedict, who restored and wonderfully extended in the West the monastic discipline, which was almost destroyed. His life, brilliant in virtues and miracles, was written by Pope St Gregory". St Benedict died in Monte Cassino in 543 or 547. Stained glass window from St Emma Monastery in Greensburg, PA.
