Saint Benedict Catholic Rosary Beads Blue-Gray Quartz and Swarovski Crystal Confirmation Baptism First Communion Gift Protection Medal


  • Details
    Our St. Benedict rosary features solid bronze centerpiece and crucifix, cast in the USA from antique originals. Our blue-gray quartz is perfectly paired with Swarovski Our Father beads, giving this rosary the gravitas of so powerful a saint.


    The double-sided St. Benedict medal shows the saint on one side, surrounded by the words:

    Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur!
    ("May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death")

    The reverse depicts his powerful cross with the letters C S S M L - N D S M D. These are the initials of the words:

    Crux sacra sit mihi lux! Non draco sit mihi dux!
    ("May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my overlord!")

    The larger letters, C S P B, stand for:

    Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti
    ("The Cross of [our] Holy Father Benedict").

    Surrounding the back of the medal are the letters V R S N S M V - S M Q L I V B which refer to the prayer of the Rite of Exorcism:

    Vade retro Satana! Nunquam suade mihi vana!
    Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas!
    ("Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities!
    What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself!"
    At the top is the word PAX which means "peace."
