Saint Benedict Rosary with ...


“The Lord waits for us daily to translate into action, as we should, his holy teachings.”

St. Benedict (Prol. 35)

“The man of God who shone on this earth among so many miracles was just as brilliant in the eloquent exposition of his teaching."  St. Gregory the Great, writing on St. Benedict (Dialogues II, 36)


On one side of the medal is the image of the Saint; on the reverse is the cross recalling the devotion he had in his life for this symbol, especially against attacks of the devil.

Legend of the initials:

S. P. B. Crux Sancti Patris Benedecti - The Cross of Holy Father Benedict

S. S. M. L. Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux – May the Holy Cross be my light

D. S. M. D. Non draco sit mihi dux - May the dragon never be my guide

R. S. Vade Retro satana - Begone satan

S. M. V. Non Suade Mihi Vana - Never tempt me with your vanities

M. Q. L. Sunt Mala Quae Libas - What you offer me is evil
