Santa Monica - San Benito 22 inch Necklace
Item No. 1125VSA5
Handmade in Mexico by VSA (Virgins, Saints and Angels)
Stunning statement pendant hangs from sturdy but beautiful chain with the San Benito Medallion in Gold with clear, silver, and blue crystal accents. St. Benedict (San Benito) is a symbol of protection from demons both internal and external. Handmade by Virgins, Saints and Angels, in Mexico. 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). 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. Medal itself is 1.5 inches in diameter.
