Saint Benedict CrucifixProduct Code: CR1206
Uniquely detailed Saint Benedict crucifix makes the perfect demonstration of faith. This statue is hand-crafted and hand-painted by widows in Colombia who have lost their husbands to violence. Due to this, fine details in each crucifix may vary slightly from the picture shown. The crucifix measures 7" tall and 4" wide and is made from plaster. The back of the crucifix has a hook so it may be hung on the wall.
The purpose of the Saint Benedict medal is to call down God's blessing and protection upon us, our homes, and our possessions, especially through the intercession of St. Benedict. The medal is a prayer of exorcism against Satan, a prayer for strength in time of temptation, a prayer for peace among ourselves and among the nations of the world, a prayer that the Cross of Christ be our light and guide, a prayer of firm rejection of all that is evil, and a prayer of petition that we may "walk in God's ways, with the Gospel as our guide," as St. Benedict urges us.
