Baskerville Wrote:Why does the western Church have two seperate feast days for him. The regular and Benedictine? I've never heard of this.

The Novus Ordo rite rewrote the Ordo (liturgical calendar) and redistributed, changed and move feasts and dates.  The Benedictine Order celebrates the feast of St. Benedict on 12 March, which has alwasy been the saint's traditional feast day. 

You can compare the N.O. calendar and the traditional one and see the differences.
