Saint Benedict Medal Choker - Non-Vintage
Stunning two-sided statement pendant of St. Benedict and the Benedictine Cross. Pendant is slightly larger and heavier than a quarter. Sterling silver coin with oxidized silver soldering surround. Choose from 16, 18, or 20" silver chain, front clasp. Each link is 3mm, for a modern look.
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.
