  • Saint Benedict Crucifix - Olive wood from Bethlehem with Top grade Corpus and Saint Benedict Medal from front and back
  • Beautiful gift and faith article. Made in Jerusalem

This is a top quality Crucifix from all sides. The Medal: On the face of the medal is the image of Saint Benedict. In his right hand he holds the cross, the Christian's symbol of salvation. In St. Benedict's left hand is his Rule for Monasteries that could well be summed up in the words of the Prolog exhorting us to "walk in God's ways, with the Gospel as our guide." On a pedestal to the right of St. Benedict is the poisoned cup, shattered when he made the sign of the cross over it. On a pedestal to the left is a raven about to carry away a loaf of poisoned bread that a jealous enemy had sent to St. Benedict. C. S. P. B. Above the cup and the raven are the Latin words: Crux s. patris Benedicti (The Cross of our holy father Benedict). On the margin of the medal, encircling the figure of Benedict, are the Latin words: Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur! (May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death!). Benedictines have always regarded St. Benedict as a special patron of a happy death. He himself died in the chapel at Montecassino while standing with his arms raised up to heaven, supported by the brothers of the monastery, shortly after St. Benedict had received Holy Communion. Below Benedict we read: ex SM Casino MDCCCLXXX (from holy Monte Cassino, 1880). This is the medal struck to commemorate the 1400th anniversary of the birth of Saint Benedict. On the back of the medal, the cross is dominant. On the arms of the cross are the initial letters of a rhythmic Latin prayer: Crux sacra sit mihi lux! Nunquam draco sit mihi dux! (May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my guide!). The Cross symbolizes salvation through Lord Jesus Christ dying for our sins. The Saint Benedict Medal has the power to ward off evil, fight temptation and be a remedy for disease. Note that Olive wood color might vary from one Cross to another and each Cross is unique in its looks and general tone.
