This 3/4 inch round St. Benedict medal. The St. Benedict medal face has the image of the saint. In his right hand, he holds the cross. In his left is his Rule for Monasteries. On a pedestal to the right of St. Benedict is the poisoned cup, shattered when he made the sign of the cross over it. On a pedestal to the left is a raven about to carry away a loaf of poisoned bread. On the margin of the medal, encircling the figure of Benedict, are the Latin words: Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur! (May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death!). On the back of the medal the cross is dominant. 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!). The medal has a silver oxidized finish. It comes on a 24 inch long chain. The medal and chain are in a black hinged jewelry box.
