St. Benedict Medal
Each one of us has the chance to make our world a better place every single day. We do so by choosing to do what is right and good, and choosing to avoid what is wrong. God has given us an internal sensor that helps us seek good and avoid evil; it’s called our conscience. He has also given us the Holy Spirit to keep our conscience strong and clear, but we still find it hard to say no to temptation and sin. The Benedictine Blessing Bracelet is an extra help in your battle to make the world a better place and follow the path to heaven. It’s like a secret weapon, and it is special for two reasons:
The St. Benedict medal has both the image of St. Benedict and the Benedictine Cross. The Benedictine Cross is one of the Church’s most powerful symbols of divine protection. It was created in the mid 600’s as a symbol of the spiritual truths that enabled St. Benedict and his many followers to resist evil and do good. “The Holy Cross be my Light,” is written in Latin on the front of the cross, which is used all over the world to help spread Christ’s Kingdom of love and light. The images of the St. Benedict medal are rich in symbolism with each detail carrying a specific meaning. If you research and learn, you can discover the meaning of all of the signs and letters on the medal; let them teach and inspire you. Wear this ancient symbol to help protect your soul, your loved ones and your home from anything contrary to God’s goodness.
