St. Benedict's Cross

The history of the original crucifix dedicated to the devotion in honor of Saint Benedict of Nursia is not clear. Most historians believe that the crucifix was developed first, and then the central symbol was struck into medals sometime in the late 1600s. The medals were first approved as a Christian sacramental by Pope Benedict XIV on December 23rd, 1741.

St. Benedict Medal

The St. Benedict cross and medal is symbolic of opening difficult paths. Christian tradition holds that it provides protection from evil and the forces of darkness, protects from curses, and protects health. Around the outside circle of the symbol are written the initial Latin letters of the Vade Retro Satana prayer, sometimes referred to as the command, "Get thee behind me, Satan!" 

The rosary pictured here is the Black Monk Rosary made by Rugged Rosaries®.
