Monde ✢ Spirituel Collection
Classic gold vermeil médaille of Saint Benedict, with classic Benedictine cross emblem on one side, Saint Benedict (Benoit) on the other. Gold vermeil with colored enamel accents on both sides. Pendant is .5 inches in diameter. It hangs on a unique 3.9mm rope chain with a front toggle clasp, made to be worn as a choker / short necklace in your choice of 15, 16 or 17 inch chain. On the arms of the cross of Saint Benedict 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). In the angles of the cross, the letters C S P B stand for Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti (The cross of our holy father Benedict). Saint Benedict of Nursia was a founder of Christian monastic communities and a rule giver for monks living in community. His purpose may be gleaned from his Rule, namely that "Christ may bring us all together to life eternal." He is patron saint of many things, especially warding off negative spirits.
This item is non-vintage. Chain and clasp are gold filled.
